Charles, Prince of Wales
Prince Charles is firstborn, and heir apparent, to Queen Elizabeth II with her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Born in 1948, he is the longest-serving heir apparent in British hisory. As a British prince, he uses the name of the area over which his father holds title as a territorial suffix in lieu of a surname.
Charles' parents continued in the footsteps of Queen Elizabeth's parents, in terms of bucking tradition, and Prince Charles first attended Hill House School in London, with non-preferential treatment from the school. Along those lines, the Queen agreed to the headmaster's advice of encouraging Prince Charles to play football, where equality on the field is prevalent.
Prince Charles broke tradition again when he went directly to university rather than joining the British Armed Forces, and became the first heir apparent to earn a university degree. Prince Charles also became the frst member of the Royal Family to have a civil wedding, rather than a religious ceremony.
