Biography Charles (Charles)
Charles Philip Arthur George was born November 14, 1948 in Bakingemskom Palace in London, the eldest son of Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) and Prince Philip. Breaking the tradition of educating the royal children in the home, parents were taught Prince Charles in private schools in England, Scotland and Australia. 26 July 1958 he was granted the title of Prince of Wales. July 1, 1969 held investiture of Prince of Wales, and he was the heir to the powers. Other major titles of Prince - Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rotseysky, Earl of Carrick, Baron Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and the supreme ruler of Scotland. In 1970, Prince graduated from the University of Cambridge. In 1971-1977 he served in the Navy. In July 1981 he married Lady Diana Spencer. Their first son was born June 21, 1982, the second - 15 September 1984. But soon the marriage fell apart: the junction was announced in 1992 but the couple formally divorced in 1996. This called into question the hereditary rights of Charles: King of Great Britain - the head of the Anglican Church, which is not permitted divorce. In 1997, Princess Diana died in a car accident, and Charles took over all the duties of his father.
