Charles, Prince of Wales

Charles Philip Arthur George, also known as Prince of Wales, was born on 14th November 1948 in the Buckingham Palace, London. He was the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. 

After completing his homeschooling at Buckingham Palace, he joined the Trinity College, Cambridge and took a bachelor’s degree from there in 1971. He later joined the Royal Air Force College and Royal Naval College and became a great pilot as well.

Moreover, Charles also spent half a year at the University College of Wales in Aberystwyth, where he learned Welsh in order to complete his preparations of being a Prince on 1 July 1969. He also became a heavy critic of modern architecture and regarding that, he also gave his opinions on the topic ‘A Vision in Britain in 1989. Three years later, he also founded the Prince of Wales’s Institute of Architecture which later turned into a BRE Trust. The organization was involved mostly into expansion and developmental projects.

On July 29, 1981, he married the love of his life, Lady Diana Frances Spencer and the royal wedding was indeed a global media event watched by millions of people across the globe. The couple had two sons, William and Harry, today widely known as Prince William and Prince Harry.  The couple grew estranged over the years and it seemed like that the two did not get along with each other that well. 

The couple parted ways in 1992 and it was reportedly heard that they too had announced their separation as well. The two, however, continued to fulfill their public duties and they too even shared the responsibility of raising their sons. Four years later in 1996, the couple officially filed their divorce. Diana too died a year later in a car crash.

Prince Charles continued to improve his public image and he later married Camilia Parker Bowles in 2005 with whom the relationship he had and the bond he shared was quite stable. His wife even took the title of the Duchess of Cornwall.

Being the son of Queen Elizabeth, he continues to perform his duties as a royal family member and also continues to enjoy the various privileges of the royal family as well.
