Biografie von Prinz Charles

Er baut Biogemüse an, interessiert sich für Architektur und setzt sich für den Klimaschutz ein: Charles Philip Arthur George Prince of Wales weiß sich die Zeit zu vertreiben, während er auf den Thron von England wartet. UNd wartet. Und wartet. Denn Queen Elizabeth II. lässt ihren ältesten Sohn ganz schön zappeln. Nur vier Jahre nach seiner Geburt wurde sie zur Königin gekrönt und hat den Thron bis heute nicht verlassen. Auch an ihrem 60. Thronjubiläum im Februar 2012 machte sie klar: an Abdanken ist nicht zu denken. Also heißt es für den Prinzen weiter geduldig sein. Doch während der langen Wartezeit hat sich Prinz Charles nie gelangweilt.

Archäologe und Historiker

Ende der 1960er Jahre studierte er Archäologie in Cambridge, wechselte aber schnell das Fach zu Geschichte. Seine Militärzeit absolvierte er bei der Royal Air Force und Royal Navy. Doch eine militärische Karriere war nie sein Plan, 1976 schied er aus der Armee aus.

Die Traumhochzeit mit Lady Diana Spencer

Am 29. Juli 1981 heiratete er Lady Diana Spencer in St. Paul’s Cathedral. Eine Märchenhochzeit vor Rekordpublikum - mehr als eine Milliarde Menschen weltweit schalteten die Fernseh- und Radioübertragung ein. Doch es blieb ein offenes Geheimnis, dass der Prinz schon damals eigentlich eine andere wollte. Charles und Diana führten eine unglückliche Ehe, wurden dennoch Eltern von den Prinzen William (geboren 1982) und Harry (geboren 1984). Und Charles traf sich weiterhin mit seiner Jugendliebe Camilla Parker-Bowles.

Krise, Scheidung, Skandal

Da Diana von der Liaison wusste, soll sich das Ehepaar schon ab 1987 nur noch zu gesellschaftlichen Anlässen getroffen haben. Doch erst im August 1996 ließen sie sich scheiden. Die Skandale um Affären der beiden, die nach der Trennung ans Licht kamen, stürzten das Königshaus in eine Krise, die ihren Gipfel erreicht als Diana bei einem tragischen Autounfall am 31. August 1997 in Paris ums Leben kam. Obwohl von ihr geschieden, flog Prinz Charles persönlich nach Paris und brachte den Leichnam Dianas zurück nach London, wo sie nach einer öffentlichen Zeremonie beerdigt wurde.

Der Action-Prinz auf Tour

  Zwei Joysticks und schon geht es los: Prinz Charles lenkt bei "MVV Energy" in Plymouth einen Kran.
  Prinz Charles muss bei seinem offiziellen Serbien-Besuch nicht nur Würdenträger besuchen, Altstädte durchbummeln und einen Baum pflanzen, sondern er wird in einem eher kleinen Boot und im Gegensatz zu seiner Begleitung auch ganz ohne Schwimmweste durch die Marschen von Kovilj gefahren.
  Eine Wackelpartie in luftiger Höhe: Prinz Charles bezwingt die Hängebrücke in den "Lost Gardens of Heligan" im englischen Cornwall.
  Prinz Charles schiebt in Washington gekonnt eine ruhige Kugel auf der Bowlingbahn des "Armed Forces Retirement"-Heimes. Von Ruhestandsbeschäftigung kann aber - trotz Rentenalter - beim Langzeit-Thronfolger noch keine Rede sein.

Eine alte, neue Liebe: Hochzeit mit Camilla

So schlimm es klingt, aber der tragische Tod seiner Ex-Frau machte für Charles den Weg frei, offen zu seiner Beziehung mit Camilla Parker Bowles zu stehen. Auch die Queen gab schlussendlich ihren Segen. Er heiratete seine Jugendliebe am 9. April 2005, sie wurde die Herzogin von Cornwall und von Jahr zu Jahr nahm ihm das Volk seine Neuehe weniger übel. Zum zehnten Jahrestag der Hochzeit 2015 zeigte sich das Volk in Befragungen geradezu sanftmütig und kann sich langsam sogar - in Teilen - mit dem Gedanken an Camilla als künftige Königin anfreunden.

Sein Engagement und sein grünes Glück

Glücklich im Privatleben vertreibt er sich die Zeit als Schirmherr seiner Stiftung, dem "Prince's Trust", der sich für benachteiligte Jugendliche einsetzt oder dem "The Prince’s Rainforests Project". Er hat Bücher über Bio-Gärtnerei oder - philosophisch angehaucht - über Harmonie geschrieben. Und beim Reiten und Aquarellmalerei kann er wahrscheinlich sogar entspannen und vergessen, dass er immer noch ein paar Jährchen auf den Thron warten muss.

MapAction is helping more people in a shorter space of time and allowing other humanitarian organisations to get to the areas most affected, to start saving lives as soon as possible."

This service underpins the delivery of emergency response by helping get the right aid to the right areas and people quickly, saving lives.
