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.

The new mum, 31, said she was “thinking of Grandpa” as she shared a touching picture of the Duke of Edinburgh alongside the Queen after her wedding in 2018.
The royal couple shared a smile with the priest who married Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank. Following her meaningful post, several members of the royal family shared their favourite moments with the prince to celebrate what would have been his milestone birthday.
