As the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Charles III was born on November 14, 1948, in London, as the eldest child of Elizabeth II and Philip. He became the first heir to be educated outside the family, as his parents broke tradition and sent him to school instead of having private tutors, and he became the first heir that was educated outside the family.
As the heir to the British Crown, Charles attended Buckingham Palace for a brief period of time in the 1960s, and went to schools in London, Hampshire, and Scotland. In 1967, Charles entered Trinity College, Cambridge as the first heir to the British Crown to obtain a degree.
During his studies, he studied archaeology, anthropology, and history as well. When he was 20 years old, in 1969, he became the Prince of Wales. During the period between 1971 and 1976, Charles III attended the Royal Air Force College as well as the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth.
Following in the footsteps of his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, he served in the Royal Navy where he piloted helicopters from 1971 to 1976.
For more than 50 years, Charles III has devoted much of his time and effort to ensuring the sustainability of the environment, which is a very important issue.
In his work, he has always brought attention to the danger posed by indestructible plastic containers and the pollution they cause. There are more than 20 charities that Charles III is credited with founding. Despite all these things, it seems that he may have attracted the attention of the British and world public more for his private life than for his values and commitments.
Lady Diana Spencer and Charles began dating in the summer of 1980 when she was 19 and he was 31 years old. It is interesting to note that Charles had already met Diana three years earlier while dating Sara, Diana's older sister. The coronation of King Charles III is today, and he has been looking forward to this moment for a very long time.
