How old is Prince Charles?
Prince Charles is first in line to the British throne as the eldest child of Queen Elizabeth II.
The heir apparent was born on November 14, 1948, which means he will turn 70 later in 2018.
The throne will pass to Prince Charles if the Queen, 91, abdicates, retires or dies – and according to reports, abdication could be a real possibility.
However, Her Majesty is said to have told her inner circle that if she is still on the throne at the age of 95, she will ask for a piece of legislation to grant her eldest son full power to reign while she is alive.
