|His Royal Highness Prince Charles
Charles Philip Arthur George Windsor
Eight-year-old Prince Charles entered a London, England, preparatory school on January 29, 1957. Formerly tutored in the royal palace, Charles became the first British heir to the throne ever to enter a preparatory school.
Prince Charles was made Prince of Wales on July 26, 1958.
As the world watched on television, Charles was formerly invested as Prince of Wales by his mother in the open interior of Caernarvon Castle on July 1, 1969. The ceremony was designed the Prince's uncle, the Earl of Snowden, to blend ancient traditions with modern technology. The ceremony was attended by 4,000 invited guests, and was covered by dozens of television cameras.
