Data di nascita: 14. Novembre 1948


Carlo, principe del Galles , è il figlio maggiore della regina Elisabetta II del Regno Unito e di Filippo, duca di Edimburgo. È erede al trono britannico dal 6 febbraio 1952 e questo fa di lui il più duraturo e il più longevo erede al trono della storia delle isole britanniche. Infatti, per la durata ha superato re Edoardo VII che fu erede al trono della regina Vittoria dal 1841 al 1901; mentre per longevità, il 20 settembre 2013, ha superato re Guglielmo IV, salito al trono all'età di 64 anni, 10 mesi e 5 giorni.

Detiene il titolo di principe del Galles dal 1958, e il suo titolo completo è Sua Altezza Reale il Principe del Galles, eccetto in Scozia dove è detto Sua Altezza Reale il principe Carlo, duca di Rothesay. Il titolo duca di Cornovaglia è spesso utilizzato dal principe nelle relazioni con la Cornovaglia.

Ricopre il grado militare di viceammiraglio della Marina Reale Britannica. Inoltre il 16 giugno 2012 la Regina gli ha conferito i più elevati titoli onorifici delle Forze armate britanniche: quello di Ammiraglio di Flotta per la marina, quello di Maresciallo di Campo per l'esercito e quello di Maresciallo della Royal Air Force per l'aviazione.

Carlo è erede al trono di sedici stati sovrani : i reami del Commonwealth. La successione alla madre con il titolo di Capo del Commonwealth non sarà comunque automatica. Se Carlo dovesse salire al trono, sarà il primo monarca britannico a discendere dalla regina Vittoria attraverso due linee di successione: da parte di madre, attraverso Edoardo VII, Giorgio V e Giorgio VI, e inoltre da parte di padre attraverso la nonna, la principessa Alice di Battenberg, bisnipote della regina Vittoria.

Carlo ha anche una fitta agenda di doveri reali, e inoltre sta assumendo sempre più impegni in luogo degli anziani genitori. Il principe è anche noto per i matrimoni con Diana Spencer, dalla quale divorziò nel 1996, e con Camilla Shand.

„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.

[ BBC News online] 'On this day', 24 February 1981. Interview with the BBC on announcing his engagement to Lady Diana Spencer.

„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.“
