Prince Charles Celebrates 70th Birthday Surrounded by Family, Friends

LONDON – Prince Charles, heir to the United Kingdom’s throne, turned 70 on Wednesday.

The Prince of Wales would be celebrating the special milestone with friends and other members of the royal family at a lavish private banquet hosted by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, at Buckingham Palace in London.

“Happy 70th birthday to HRH The Prince of Wales,” tweeted Clarence House, the prince’s official residence on the occasion.

At noon, the King’s Troop, Royal Horse Artillery in Green Park would fire a 41-round royal gun salute honoring the prince and at 1 pm a similar response would be fired by the Honourable Artillery Company at the Tower of London, facing the River Thames, to coincide with the ringing of bells at Westminster Abbey.

The UK’s BBC broadcast a documentary last week marking the Charles’ 70th birthday after access was granted to his royal duties with exclusive behind the scenes footage both at home and abroad.

On occasion of Charles’ birthday, an official photographic shoot took place at Clarence House, the official residence of the prince and his wife, Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, in the company of Prince William and Prince Harry, their wives Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, as well as Charles’ three grandchildren Prince George, Prince Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Charles became the heir to the throne when he was about 4 years old after his mother became queen when her father, King George VI, passed away while she was traveling in Kenya.

Charles became the first heir to earn a university degree in 1970. He studied archeology and anthropology in his first year at Cambridge and later switched to history.

He has shown an outspoken passion when dealing with the many subjects close to his heart, from architecture to environmental issues, speaking at the Paris Climate change conference back in 2015.
