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.
After working with Prince Charles on a special project for Buckingham Palace, designer Amber Khokhar has detailed how the future Monarch could "bring all kinds of people together" after a tumultuous few years for the Royal family.
Amber was commissioned to design a 40 metre-long carpet that sits alongside George IV's collection of paintings – and the role gave her a unique insight into the Royal household and its inhabitants.
Amber spoke to Charles through staff members during the whole design process, and tells OK!: "They were very trusting and told me to do whatever I thought, which as an artist is such a dream. "Afterwards I get to meet the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, HRH The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh." Sign up to the OK!.Read more on ok.co.uk
