How rich is Prince Charles?
Prince Charles is the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II’s currently reigning and her late husband, Prince Philip. While growing organic vegetables, campaigning for climate protection, and reading architecture books, he is waiting for the incipient succession to the throne. Theoretically, it would also be conceivable that this would pass directly to his firstborn son, Prince William. The Prince of Wales is a passionate grandfather and loves hunting, horse riding, and walks. The estimated net worth of Prince Charles is 85 million euros.
Active in the military and love
Prince Charles was born in London on November 14, 1948. He is the firstborn of the four children of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. He was followed by his siblings Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward. His full name is Charles Philip Arthur George Mountbatten-Windsor. At the age of 4, he attended the coronation ceremony of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II. He attended traditional private schools and was an exchange student in Geelong, Australia. In 1967, Prince Charles began studying archeology and anthropology but quickly switched to history.
He then began his military career with the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force. In addition to helicopters, Prince Charles also flew propeller and jet planes. Despite reaching three higher military ranks, Prince Charles retired from military service in 1976. Besides, he never missed an opportunity to surround himself with beautiful women. Before he was supposed to get married, he wanted to have a lot of fun.
Dream wedding with Lady Diana
Since the early 1970s, the Prince of Wales also appeared as the official representative of the British Crown. A suitable wife was expected, and although his heart belonged to someone else, a dream wedding with Lady Diana Spencer took place on July 29, 1981. More than a billion people attended the TV and radio broadcast of the wedding. He could and never wanted to leave his great love, Camilla Parker Bowles. The prince’s marriage was unhappy due to the affair with Camilla, and neither could the two sons Prince William and Prince Harry, change that.
Relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles
After his wife Diana gave up fighting for Charles’s love and had extramarital affairs herself, the two divorced in 1996. A year later, Lady Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Al-Fayed were killed in a car accident in Paris. From 2000, the prince appeared publicly with Camilla Parker Bowles, whom he also married in 2005. While Camilla initially had to contend with great opposition from the British, the resistance subsided over the years. Now many can even imagine the Duchess of Cornwall as the future Queen. Prince Charles and Camilla’s official residence is Clarence House in London, but most of them stay at their country estate in Highgrove House.
Prince Charles’ duties and engagements
Since 2007, Prince Charles has been the longest-serving direct heir to the throne in the British monarchy. For over 50 years, he has attended many representation appointments every year. He is also active as a patron of various organizations. His charity, Prince’s Trust, has been in existence since 1976 and supports disadvantaged youth and adults.
As the reigning Queen’s eldest son, Prince Charles is entitled to the Duchy of Cornwall Trust, a trust fund that includes a huge real estate portfolio. The annual income from this fund is around 17 million euros.
Prince Charles is actively involved in organic farming and has been running Duchy Home Farm in Tetbury since 1985. The farm was delivering boxes of vegetables until 2014. The protection of the rainforests and measures against climate change are also key issues for the heir. He has also written several books on his main interests, for example, Harmony – a new view of our world.
