Introduction to Personality of Prince Charles
Prince Charles was born on the 1st of April, 1956, in England. He is the youngest son of Prince Philip and Diana, Princess of Wales. He is the Prince of Wales, Earl of Chester, and Duke of Cornwall.
He holds a number of other titles, including Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, and Lord High Admiral. He also has joint-marital status with the Duchess of Cornwall.
His father is a direct descendant from King Edward I (1239-1307) through his mother Elizabeth Woodville (1246-1319), and his mother’s third husband John ap Rhiwallon (died 1372), who was a grandson on his mother’s side from Edward III’s youngest son Edmund.
Life and Family of Prince Charles
There is a very good chance that, were you to Google your name, you would not find a single reference to you in the British press. Your name is not on the popular lexicon of British politics, or of British royalty. It seems that if your London flat happens to be on the market, it does not appear on listings at all. The fact that this happened in the relatively recent past is a sign of how ingrained it has become — and perhaps even how deeply ingrained it remains even now; it’s one thing to have your name in print and quite another to have it out of paper.
If you are one of those people who has been “just an ordinary bloke”, with no royal connection at all — then you are probably wondering exactly what goes into making yourself part of British royalty. This page (which contains links to several sources) will help explain it further:

Prince Charles and the Funeral of Princess Diana
Prince Charles was a member of the Royal Family of the United Kingdom, and he also served as Prince of Wales from 1981 to his death in 2002.
He was born Paul David Charles on 19 March 1960 in London, England, the eldest son of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, and Princess Diana, Duchess of Cornwall. His father is Britain’s longest-serving Commonwealth monarch, and his mother is a member of the British Royal Family.
He was named after his paternal uncle Prince Andrew. His parents divorced in 1996, and he began to live with his mother’s former lover Andrew Parker Bowles in 1997. He moved back into the Palace at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on 11 June 2003 when his mother remarried to Charles’ uncle, Prince William.
On 29 August 2005, he married Camilla Parker Bowles in an Anglican ceremony at Westminster Abbey; they have three children (the eldest two sons are Thomas Edward Louis Arthur Louis Charles Albert “Toby” Alexander Bowes-Lyon and James Edward Earl Mountbatten-Windsor).
In January 2006, when Princess Diana was killed on 31 August 1997 by her chauffeur-driven car (when she left a late engagement), Charles’ public appearances were reduced by nearly 50%, according to The Telegraph newspaper.
On 6 November 2007, during an official visit to Windsor Castle where he had arrived for a military parade honoring the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebration (a parade which included several hundred tanks), Charles accidentally sprayed water over Princess Diana’s coffin; later Friday, as well as Saturday newspapers, reported that this incident was intentional because it had been planned since shortly before the funeral day. On 3 June 2009, it was announced that Camilla Parker Bowles would become Lady Fellowes when she married Prince William next month. Lady Fellowes will be one of four women who sit along with Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Sue Barker as peers on The House of Lords.
Prince Charles and the Death of Diana
As you’ve no doubt heard, Charles Philip Arthur George, known as the Prince of Wales, has died. Here are a few things you might have missed or want to know:
• The princess has been married to the prince since 1999 and they have three children.
• Charles is the heir to the British throne (as well as Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland).
• He is a great friend of mine (and one I’ve photographed many times)
• I’ll miss him dearly (though not for much longer).
You may know his family from his father’s side: he was born into the House of Windsor and was made a prince by his late father in 1947. Or perhaps they are familiar from their parents’ side: he had two older brothers and one older sister; one of them is Diana. He was born in London on 21 March 1981. His father was a member of the royal family who served as the fourth Earl Mountbatten of Burma and his mother was a great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria (her mother being Princess Alice). It’s worth noting that Charles’ mother is also a descendant of Queen Victoria through her mother, Princess Alice.
From an early age, Charles demonstrated what would later become an instinctive talent for glamour: he played piano as well as guitar and took up several languages including Italian at school at Eton College in Berkshire. In 1998, he took on an official engagement with the Queen at her Silver Jubilee celebrations in June 2002, where – among other things – he received an honoring Olympic silver medal for sailing just weeks before she visited the Olympic Games on home soil. A year later he got engaged to Catherine Middleton. They married on 29 April 2003 in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. The couple has three children together: Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
In 2007 it was announced that Diana had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia , which resulted in her being treated with intensive chemotherapy and undergoing radiotherapy treatment over three years. She died on 31 August 1997 after flying home from France on a private jet belonging to her husband’s brother Andrew Parker Bowles. Her death shocked the world – particularly because she had first gained national prominence through her charitable work with disabled children – but it did not break Britain’s royal family apart as some feared it would; instead, it created more unity between them than had been
Framing Modern Day England
The Duke of Cambridge is the prince of Wales. He is not, as most people think, Prince Charles. Prince Charles is not a member of the royal family, and he has no title. However, he is a member of the British royal family — hence “Prince Charles” — and so he is titled as such in this post.
There seems to be a lot of confusion here (and I’m not sure why). A lot of people think that because William was born outside the law (the Queen was legally married to William’s father) that William couldn’t be heir-apparent to the throne. That isn’t true. There are laws regarding succession in England, but they don’t apply to other countries: if you have children outside England you are not automatically an heir-apparent (unless you are born in England or Wales). But if your parents were born in England or Wales (or Scotland or Northern Ireland), you will always be the heir-apparent to your parents!
Obviously, there are other considerations — though these seem minor compared to the fact that our Prince Charles has access to all forms of transportation and information technology through his birthright before anyone else can use them — but these considerations are still relevant. And since they are relevant they should be furthermore considered when making decisions about how to promote our product and how much we should spend on advertising it.
