Charles, Prince of Wales, Queen Elizabeth's eldest son, was born to be King of England. Yet his destiny wasn't always clear. His troubled marriage to Princess Diana, his adultery scandal with the then-married Camilla Parker Bowles, and the resulting poor public opinion all nearly derailed Charles's path to the throne. But there has been a remarkable evolution for the heir--and his wife, Camilla--as his popularity has soared. He's a father navigating the fallout of his son Harry's break with the family. He's an activist-royal ahead of many on critical issues. And as his mother ages, Charles is a king-in-waiting, already performing many official duties typically carried out by the monarch. What kind of king will Charles be?
This beautifully illustrated and expertly told special edition of PEOPLE traces Charles's life through his restrictive royal childhood, his bachelor years, and his wedding and marriage to Diana, as well as its tragic end. PEOPLE's unparalleled coverage also offers a compelling picture of Charles's and Camilla's life today.
