Charles Philip Arthur George Windsor named at his birth on the 14th of November 1948. Charles, the eldest child and son of Queen Elizabeth II of England, Great Britain, Wales, and all Territories, is the current heir to the British throne. Born to Elizabeth and Prince Philip (Philip Mountbatten of the royal family of Greece) in 1948, a year after the young royals wedding, and four years before Elizabeth became Queen with the unfortunate death of her father, the raining King of England.

Charles was ordained Prince of Wales in 1958, serving as a pilot and commander in the Royal Navy from 1971-76. In 1981 he married Lady Diana Spencer, who died in 1997, the "Peoples' Princes", in a high-speed car chase in Paris, France. Prior to Diana's death, Diana was named Princes of Wales and became a royal in her own right. Diana was soon stripped of he Her Royal Highness title when the royal couple separated in 1992 and were divorced in 1996. The royal union did produce an heir and "a spare", Prince William (Born in 1982) and Prince Henry (also called Harry, Born in 1984).

After Diana's death, Charles officially acknowledged having had a lengthy clandestine affair/relationship with Camilla Parker-Bowles, throughout his entire royal marriage to Diana Spencer. Charles and Camilla met in the early 1970s, becoming friends, and later romantic partners. Due to the pressure to marry a woman who could bear him heirs, Charles married Diana, while Camilla (or Dog face as she was affectionately known) married Army Captain Andrew Parker Bowles in 1973.

After Diana's death in 1997, Parker-Bowles became recognized as Charles steady companion and partner, amid much public chatter about the propriety of their relationship, or the lack of it, and her eventual role should it be unfortunate, that Charles become king. The two were married in a civil ceremony in London on the 9th of April 2005. Their non-religious union was blessed the same day in a ceremony at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, attended by only the royal family, relatives, and very close friends from both the groom's and brides families.

Queen Elizabeth II gave Parker-Bowles the HRH Title of Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall. Why an obscure place like Cornwall? Well, One of Charles's many titles is the Duke of Cornwall. Under no circumstances, according to British Law, will Camilla be called Queen Camilla, the once mistress and now wife of Charles, Prince of Wales, and current Heir to the British Throne, if Charles were to become King.

When you poll the British Citizens on the original Question: Should Charles become King, if Elizabeth II were to step down and/or, God forbid, suddenly pass away, what you could potentially hear are as many or even more opinions than the number of British Citizens that were polled. Now, having a better understand of the Royal Life of Charles Philip Arthur George Windsor, what might be your opinion if asked?
