Date de naissance: 14. novembre 1948

Publicité

Le prince Charles, prince de Galles , né le 14 novembre 1948 à Londres est un membre de la famille royale britannique, fils aîné de la reine Élisabeth II et du prince Philip, duc d'Édimbourg.

Depuis 1952, il occupe la première place dans l'ordre de succession au trône britannique et dans chacun des royaumes du Commonwealth. Il est également héritier aux fonctions de gouverneur-suprême de la Communion anglicane, duc de Normandie, seigneur de Man, chef suprême des Fidji etc. Depuis 1958, il est connu par son titre supérieur de prince de Galles. Toutefois, il utilise d'autres titres en fonction de l'endroit où il siège ; par exemple duc de Rothesay lorsqu'il se trouve en Écosse ou en Angleterre, par droit du duché de Cornouailles.

Le prince Charles détient le plus haut rang des membres de la famille royale britannique à la suite de sa mère, la reine Élisabeth II, et il est le deuxième plus long titulaire en tant que prince de Galles : ce titre est accordé aux héritiers de la couronne d'Angleterre. Il est en outre héritier du trône depuis plus de 60 ans, ce qui constitue le record absolu. Le 18 septembre 2013, il devient l'héritier du trône le plus âgé, dépassant ainsi le roi Guillaume IV.

„You have got to choose somebody very carefully who could fulfill this particular role“

—  Charles, Prince of Wales
Context: You have got to choose somebody very carefully who could fulfill this particular role, because people like you, perhaps, would expect quite a lot from somebody like that and it has got to be somebody pretty special. "Prince Charles discusses marriage", The Times, 27 June 1969, p. 10 Asked about "the lady the Prince should marry" in a joint televised interview with BBC and ITN broadcast on 26 June 1969.

„Instead of designing an extension to the elegant facade of the National Gallery which complements it and continues the concept of columns and domes, it looks as if we may be presented with a kind of municipal fire station, complete with the sort of tower that contains the siren. I would understand better this type of high-tech approach if you demolished the whole of Trafalgar Square and started again with a single architect responsible for the entire layout, but what is proposed is like a monstrous carbuncle on the face of a much-loved and elegant friend.“

„I think it's something that dawns on you with the most ghastly, inexorable sense. I didn't suddenly wake up in my pram one day and say 'Yippee, I —', you know. But I think it just dawns on you, you know, slowly, that people are interested in one, and slowly you get the idea that you have a certain duty and responsibility.“
