Prince Charles


Prince Charles, (Charles Philip Arthur George)  The Prince of Wales, KG KT GCB OM AK QSO CD SOM GCL PC AdC(P) FRS was born on 14 November 1948.

As the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, he  is the heir apparent to sixteen Realms including Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Since 1958, his principal title has been HRH The Prince of Wales. In Scotland he is additionally known as The Duke of Rothesay. Prince Charles was educated at Cheam and Gordonstoun Schools, which his father, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, had attended as a child. He spent two terms at the Timbertop campus of Geelong Grammar in Australia.

On being awarded a bachelor of arts degree from Trinity College, Cambridge, Prince Charles served with the Royal Navy from  1971 to 76. He married Lady Diana Spencer before an enormous worldwide television audience in 1981. They had two sons, Prince William of Wales in 1982 and Prince Harry of Wales in 1984. The marriage was dissolved in in 1996.

Diana, Princess of Wales died in a car crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.

In 2005,  the Prince married Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Apart from his education in 1967, Prince Charles has often been in Australia, in particular in
 1970, 1974, 1979, 1981, 1983, 1988, 1994 1996 and  2005



..remarkable charity work...




 The prince is well-known for his charity work and sponsors The Prince's Trust, The Prince's Regeneration Trust, and the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment, among other charities.

ACM has long been indicating something newsworthy not much mentioned in the media - in a typical year he raises around  one quarter of a billion dollars (A$1 billion) for charity.

He has been outspoken concerning architecture and the conservation of old buildings and has produced a book on the subject called A Vision of Britain (1989). He has also promoted herbal and other alternative medical treatment.

Unite for wildlife Print E-mail

Sunday, 09 February 2014

Our two future kings, Prince Charles and Prince William. have made it their mission to save elephants, rhino and other animals from extinction, and they have persuaded David Cameron to host a two-day conference in London, which will be attended by ministers from countries that contribute to the £6 billion trade in ivory, rhino horn and other banned products.

 
 
 

The Prince and the Duke have recorded a video, which will be shown at the conference and released on YouTube, in which the Duke declares: “We have to be the generation that stopped the illegal wildlife trade and secured the future of these magnificent animals and their habitats, for if we fail it will be too late.”

The Duke, positioned on his father’s right, invokes the birth of his own son, Prince George, to explain his passion for saving wildlife.

 “This year, I have become even more devoted to protecting the resources of the earth for not only my own son, but for the other children of his generation to enjoy,” he says.

They hope that the video will be seen in China, Vietnam and other countries where demand for banned animal products leads to what the Prince says are “unprecedented levels of killing” by poachers.

The video ends with the Prince and the Duke saying “Let’s unite for wildlife” in Mandarin, Arabic, Spanish, Swahili and Vietnamese.

At an age when most people are enjoying their retirement, Prince Charles spends his days working for a vast range of charities especially those for the disadvantaged the environment and our heritage, while also performing Royal duties. He has raised more money than most other charitable fund raisers, and he receives nothing in return.

The British taxpayers pay nothing to him.

 Always close to Australia and Australians, he has made a substantial personal donation to a fund for victims of the recent bushfires. Happy Birthday, Prince Charles.

When supporters of one of two Australians wrongly held in Dubai since 2009 became disillusioned with what they saw as a lack of action by the Gillard government, they approached Prince Charles. He has taken a personal interest in the case, and has been briefed on it by a leading Australian Queen’s Counsel, Jack Rush.

The print version of The Australian’s front page exclusive report on 26 February, 2013 by Cameron Stewart is accompanied by a cartoon, showing a courtier on bended knee saying to Prince Charles “ Sire! There are a couple of colonials being held prisoner in Dubai!”  Prince Charles, wearing a crown, says “ Fuel the jet” . The cartoon is titled  “ CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY! HOW IT WORKS”

[The  cartoon above is by Nicholson from “The Australian” newspaper: www.nicholsoncartoons.com.au. and appeared on the editorial page. We thank Mr. Nicholson and The Australian for  their kind  permission to post his cartoon. This permission should not of course be interpreted as indicating support for the ACM mission.]
