Early Life

Charles was born at Buckingham Palace in 1948. He was baptized by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Geoffrey Fisher, with water from the River Jordan. He had several Godparents, which included grandparents, aunts and cousins. For the first 73 years of his life up until his mother died in September 2022, he was referred to as Prince Charles, or more formally, Charles, Prince of Wales.

Personal Life

Not only did Charles have a very active military life, but he had a very busy love life too. He was quite the man with the ladies. He was advised by the first Earl Mountbatten of Burma, to have as many affairs as possible before getting married, but when it comes to choosing a wife, be sure she a sweet, inexperienced and suitable. He met Lady Diana Frances Spencer at her home, while visiting her sister Sarah. After spending some time together, Charles began to consider asking for Lady Diana’s hand in marriage. Despite a few objections, Charles did propose and they were married in 1981. They had two children, Prince William and Prince Harry. Although some believe Prince Harry to be the son of James Hewitt, he has stated that the affair he had with Lady Diana was after Henry’s birth. The marriage of Lady Diana and Prince Charles ended in 1996. His second marriage was to Camilla Parker-Bowles, a woman it is said to have been having an affair with Charles while he was still married to Lady Diana. Charles was the first member of the Royal Family to have a civil wedding instead of a religious one.

Education

Charles was made heir apparent at age three when his mother became Queen. At that time he was given the title Duke of Cornwall. After being taught his lessons by governess, Catherine Peebles, for three years, he attended Hill House School in West London. He then went on to Cheam Preparatory School in Berkshire, England. His father, Prince Philip had attended that school in his youth. He went from there to Gordonstoun, which he hated. His complaint was that it was just too cold in kilts. He also spent two terms at Geelong Grammar School in Geelong, Australia and became Head Boy, just like his father. He left in 1967 and did quite well in History and French, with an A level. He then went straight from secondary school to Trinity College Cambridge, and took classes in history, anthropology, and archaeology. He graduated in 1970 with a 2.2 Bachelor of Arts degree. He also received a Masters of Arts Degree from Cambridge and studied the Welsh Language at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.

Philanthropy

King Charles has been an active philanthropist through the Prince of Wales’ Charitable Foundation. Founded in 1979, it is one of largest independent foundations active in the United Kingdom. The foundation oversees grants for such Eco-friendly and sustainability programs as the International Sustainability Unit and the Prince of Wales’s Accounting for Sustainability Project. Over the past decade, he has awarded more than $72.5 million in grants. One of the beneficiaries of the Prince’s foundation is Tusk, an organization dedicated to stopping poaching in Africa. Both Prince William and Prince Harry have also worked with this organization.
