Through the years, HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales has been active across a wide range of charitable causes, showing an enduring dedication to bringing people together across all sections of society. Like Her Majesty The Queen, he has always put duty first – a commitment which now sees the prince take on an ever-increasing number of official engagements as Her Majesty’s representative in the United Kingdom, Commonwealth and overseas.
The Prince of Wales was just four years old when his mother stepped into the role of queen and he became second in line to the throne. Since then, he has demonstrated an unwavering sense of duty. As an active philanthropist, Prince Charles's commitment to improving the life of those in Britain and the Commonwealth has been a lifelong pursuit – one which will continue to benefit many future generations.
We may know her as Her Majesty The Queen, but a speech made at the Diamond Jubilee celebrations revealed that she will always be ‘mummy’ to The Prince of Wales. He was the first member of the Royal Family to break the tradition of private tuition by receiving his education at school, before going on to gain a degree at university. Known for his charitable work in fields such as global sustainability, youth opportunity, and architecture, he is also the longest-serving heir apparent and a keen salmon angler.
