Charles, Prince of Wales (Charles Philip Arthur George; born 14 November 1948) is the heir apparent to the British throne as the eldest son of Elizabeth II. He has been Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay since 1952, and he is the oldest and longest-serving heir apparent in British history.
He is also the longest-serving Prince of Wales, having held that title since 1958. Charles was born at Buckingham Palace as the first grandchild of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. He was educated at Cheam and Gordonstoun schools, which his father, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, had attended as a child. Charles also spent a year at the Timbertop campus of Geelong Grammar School in Victoria, Australia.
King Charles is said to be optimistic that the relationship between the Royals and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is repairable.
After stepping down from royal duties two years ago and relocating to the US, Prince Harry, 38, and Meghan Markle, 41, have had a some-what estranged relationship with the royals – in particular between Harry and his brother Prince William.
However, following the pair’s trip to the UK and them coming together as one with the rest of the family in the wake of Her Majesty the Queen’s death, it’s said there were “flickers of hope” that their relationship is salvageable. “It remains the case that the King loves both of his children,” a source told The Telegraph. “Over the last 16 days or so, there were tremendous flickers of hope.
In terms of the future, there is hope of a cause for unity.” It comes after King Charles III appeared to offer an olive branch to his estranged son in his first ever public address as monarch.Read more on ok.co.uk
