On Wednesday, Prince Charles celebrates his 70th birth anniversary by attending private and public parties, which his office releases new photos of the heir of British Crown with his close family.
The Prince of Wales and Eldest son of Queen Elizabeth, Charles born on November 14, 1948, at Buckingham Palace, 4-years before his now 92-years old mother Queen Elizabeth has ascended to the throne following the death of George VI, his father.
To celebrate his 70th birthday, Prince Charles will participate in a special tea party heralding 70 inspirational people, who this year turned 70, before Charles will head to a private party for family and friends hosted by the Queen.
As Great Britain’s heir apparent, Prince Charles has to wait longer than any of his predecessor to become the Monarch and would be the oldest king in a lineage, which dated back 1000 years.
Prince Charles has utilized his position to campaign over the issues including architecture, climate change, and farming. He often raised prescient concern regarding the environment, claims his supporters.
In a BBC documentary released last week, Prince Charles said that “When my mama succeeded and became queen and my grandfather died so young, aged 57, I ended up becoming heir to the throne aged four.”
“You have to make of it what you feel is right – there’s nothing laid down so that’s what makes it so interesting, challenging and of course complicated,” added Charles.
Critics in several occasion have accused Prince Charles of inappropriate interferences as British Monarch are bound by the unwritten constitution of Great Britain to stay out of politics.
Charles in last week’s documentary said that he would stop ‘meddling’ in campaigns, which he felt strongly concerned about.
He said that “I’m not that stupid,” adding “I do realize that it is a separate exercise being sovereign.”
The released photo sees Prince Charles in the lawn of his London resident ‘Clarence House’ together with his second wife Camilla, Sons William and Harry, both with their wives Kate and Meghan along with George, Charlotte, and Louis, children of Kate and William.
William in the BBC film said that he hoped his hard-working father would spend more time with his children.
He continued that “now he’s reached his 70th year, it’s a perfect time to consolidate a little bit as most families would do; you are worried about having them around, making sure their health’s OK,” adding that “He’s the fittest man I know but equally I want him to be fit so he’s 95 going on, so having more time with him at home would be lovely.”
However, William said that Prince Charles still believed that he had more to achieve in life.
William acknowledged Prince Charles and said that “he hasn’t even reached the point that his natural progression should do – ie being monarch – so he’s still got his job to do.”
