Prince of Wales      

The Prince of Wales

His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is the eldest son of The Queen and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He is the current Heir to the Throne.

He attended Cambridge University from 1967-1970 to read archaeology and anthropology at Trinity College, later changing to history. Upon graduation he trained as a jet pilot, then embarked on a naval career from 1971 until 1976, during which time he qualified as a helicopter pilot and joined the 845 Naval Air Squadron.

In addition to his many royal engagements (around 600 a year), His Royal Highness has a wide range of interests which are reflected in ‘The Prince’s Charities’, a group of 20 not-for-profit organisations of which The Prince of Wales is President. Eighteen of the 20 Charities were founded personally by The Prince. The group is the largest multi-cause charitable enterprise in the UK, raising over £100m annually.

The organisations are active across a broad range of areas including opportunity and enterprise, education, health, the built environment and responsible business and the natural environment. These interests are also reflected in the list of around 400 organisations of which he is Patron or President.
