King Charles III has five grandchildren and five step-grandchildren from Camilla's first marriage.
Photos show him doting on his grandchildren as babies and collecting gifts for them.
Some of Charles' grandchildren attended his coronation in May.
King Charles has five royal grandchildren and five step-grandchildren from Camilla's first marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles.
Charles' son Prince William has three children with Kate Middleton: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. His younger son Prince Harry has two children with Meghan Markle: Archie and Lilibet.
Camilla, the Queen Consort, has five grandchildren from her first marriage. Her son, Tom Parker Bowles, and his wife, Sarah, have two kids, Lola and Freddy. Her daughter, Laura, is married to Harry Lopes and has a daughter, Eliza, and twin boys, Gus and Louis.
The photo above was taken on Charles' 70th birthday in 2018, before Harry and Meghan's children were born. It was featured in the program for his coronation on May 6.
After Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding, Charles gave his step-granddaughter Eliza a boost on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Eliza was in William and Kate's wedding party in 2011.
When Prince George was born, Charles collected gifts for his newest grandchild.
At the Whitstable Oyster Festival in Kent in 2013, well-wishers gave him a tiny souvenir shirt for Prince George.
He appeared excited to receive a teddy bear for George at the Sandringham Flower Show in 2013.
Charles kept the teddy bear dry under his umbrella.
As George grew, Charles listened attentively to his toddler musings.
George pointed out into the distance at Trooping the Colour in 2015.
They chatted after a charity polo match in 2015, where Charles appeared to admire George's shoes.
Charles, Kate, and George attended the Gigaset Charity Polo Match at Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury, England.
Four generations of the royal family, including Charles and his oldest son and grandson, baked a Christmas pudding together for military veterans in 2018.
"Prince George is clearly in the moment mixing that Christmas pudding," Chris Jackson, the Getty Images royal photographer who snapped this photo, previously told Business Insider. "And everyone's obviously feeling quite relaxed. But, at the same time, this picture has historical connotations because you've got the heirs to the throne and the Queen. It was a rare moment to capture all four of them together, looking so relaxed."
When Prince Louis was a baby, Charles held him close.
Charles held Louis after a family photo shoot in the gardens of Clarence House for his 70th birthday in 2018.
Now that Louis is a little more grown up, Charles holds him in his lap.
Louis sat on his grandfather's lap at the Platinum Pageant on The Mall in June to mark Queen Elizabeth's platinum jubilee.
Even when the occasional meltdown happens, Charles isn't phased.
The roar of military planes flying over Buckingham Palace appeared to be too much for then-4-year-old Louis at last year's Trooping the Colour.
In May, all three of William and Kate's children attended Charles' coronation.
George served as a page of honor for the king. Charlotte sat with her parents throughout the ceremony, while Louis stepped out for a break during the service.
While Harry attended the coronation, Meghan, Archie, and Lilibet did not.
Charles chatted with George on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the ceremony.
As a page of honor, George helped hold the nearly 15-foot-long train of Charles' coronation robe.
