Biografie von Prinz Charles

Er baut Biogemüse an, interessiert sich für Architektur und setzt sich für den Klimaschutz ein: weiß sich die Zeit zu vertreiben, während er auf den von England wartet. UNd wartet. Und wartet. Denn 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 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 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 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 , 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.

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.

Please take a moment to watch this new film featuring The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry that has been released as part of the Heads Together campaign's #OkToSay series. The film captures a conversation between Their Royal Highnesses that occurred at Kensington Palace as they looked ahead to this weekend's London Marathon and reflected on the growth of the campaign over the last year. The conversation covers a range of topics including the emotional changes new parents go through, bereavement, the stresses of modern childhood, and dealing with trauma in the workplace. The Duke and Duchess and Prince Harry are incredibly grateful to everyone who has shared their stories in recent weeks. And having asked others to start conversations on mental health with their friends and families, they wanted to show that they are taking part as well. They hope the film shows how positive a conversation on mental health can be. #HeadsTogether
