Prince Charles, also known as Charles, Prince of Wales, is the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and the heir to the British throne. He was born on November 14, 1948, and has been Prince of Wales since 1958.
Throughout his life, Prince Charles has been actively involved in a wide range of charitable and philanthropic causes.

As the heir to the throne, Prince Charles has also been involved in a number of official duties and engagements. He has represented the British monarchy on numerous occasions, both at home and abroad, and has undertaken a number of state visits.
Despite his many accomplishments, Prince Charles has also been the subject of some controversy. His divorce from Princess Diana in 1996 was highly publicised and led to criticism of his conduct. Additionally, his views on certain issues, such as architecture and the environment, have been seen as controversial by some.
Highly Respected British Figure

His dedication to charitable causes and his passion for the arts and the environment have earned him a great deal of admiration and respect from both the public and his peers.
