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.
A Royal guard caused a small commotion in the early hours of Thursday morning as he fainted while guarding The Queen’s coffin and toppled face first from the podium.
The unfortunate event happened at around 1am, just as the guard was about to change over, with one soldier dressed in black appearing to be a little unsteady on his feet ahead of the incident.
Stepping off the podium momentarily, he regained his composure and resumed position, but just a few moments later, the same guard sadly fainted and fell from the podium headfirst into the ground.Read more on ok.co.uk
