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.
Following the death of The Queen last week, King Charles has had a lot of changes to deal with as he became the new monarch following his mother’s sad passing.
Alongside his grief, the new King, supported by his devoted wife, Camilla, Queen Consort must now navigate his mother’s funeral, his impending coronation and readjust to his life as the head of state, after spending so much of his life waiting to follow in his mother’s formidable footsteps.
But one specific logistical concern that will now need to be addressed, is where the new King and Queen Consort will live. Prior to becoming the head of state, the former Prince of Wales had resided happily at Clarence House in London, while enjoying a number of other private residences which included Highgrove House in Gloucestershire, and Llwynywermod in Wales.Read more on ok.co.uk
