Prince Charles turns 60 this Friday. Happy birthday and may you have many more. As the Prince of Wales, Charles has made huge contributions to humanity. He has turned a silent role into something that has spurred many worthwhile causes around the world.
CNN today reports that he now becomes the longest waiting heir to the throne. Royal tradition says that he can only become the king when her mother passes away or she steps down from her throne. Queen Elizabeth will host a party for Prince Charles this Thursday at the Buckingham Palace. The Philharmonic Orchestra, of which Prince Charles is a patron, will be playing for a few invited guests. Charles’ wife Camilla, on the other hand, plans to throw a more private bash on Saturday at the prince’s rural estate, complete with a performance by rocker Rod Stewart. That’s a cool party isn’t it?
Now what does Prince Charles want as a birthday gift the most? Some say the crown, but there are opinions that the Queen will be keeping it for life, so Prince Charles may have to wait until she has lived her days.
