Jump to: navigation, search

Charles, Prince of Wales has received numerous titles, decorations, and honorary appointments during his time as heir apparent to the thrones of the Commonwealth realms. Each is listed below; where two dates are shown, the first indicates the date of receiving the title or award (the title as Prince Charles of Edinburgh being given as from his birth) and the second indicates the date of its loss or renunciation.

Royal and noble titles and styles[edit]

  • 14 November 1948 – 6 February 1952: His Royal Highness Prince Charles of Edinburgh
  • 6 February 1952 – present: His Royal Highness The Duke of Cornwall
    • in Scotland: 6 February 1952 – present: His Royal Highness The Duke of Rothesay
  • 26 July 1958 – present: His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales

The Prince's style and title in full: His Royal Highness The Prince Charles Philip Arthur George, Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, Prince and Great Steward of Scotland, Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Extra Knight of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle, Grand Master and Principal Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath, Member of the Order of Merit, Knight of the Order of Australia, Companion of the Queen's Service Order, Royal Chief Grand Companion of the Order of Logohu, Member of Her Majesty's Most Honourable Privy Council, Member of the Queen's Privy Council for Canada, Aide-de-Camp to Her Majesty[citation needed]

Regnal name[edit]

If Prince Charles succeeds his mother as monarch and uses his first given name as his regnal name, he will be known as Charles III. However, there has been speculation that he may choose a different name, because the previous two monarchs named Charles are both associated with negative events in royal history: Charles I was beheaded in 1649, and Charles II reigned during the Great Fire of London and the plague. The name Charles III is also associated with the Jacobite pretender, Charles Edward Stuart, who claimed the throne under that name in the 18th century. The most discussed alternative regnal name has been George VII, in honour of Charles' maternal grandfather,[1][2] although the Prince has denied discussing a regnal name.[3]
