In that photo, I would say there is a strong resemblance, but I've always thought that Prince Charles was a mix of his mother and grandmother.

The Prince of Wales congratulated a community for restoring their village hall in a £700,000 project.
Charles described the hall in the village of Mey, Caithness, as "marvellous" after unveiling a plaque to officially open it.

A NEW cultural centre in the far north of Scotland was officially opened yesterday by Prince Charles as he maintained the Royal family's strong link to Caithness.

Prince goes north for the culture - Scotsman.com News

Prince Charles said yesterday that he hoped a new cultural centre would bring "something special"
to a region with close royal ties.
Charles, the Duke of Rothesay, spoke as he officially opened Caithness Horizons in the Highland town of Thurso.

I see HRH is wearing his kilt. When did the family officially get their's and has the colors changed with the family bloodlines and names changing--does that makes sense?

Yes and No!

Quote:
The earliest known reference for the use of a royal tartan is contained in the accounts of the treasurer of King James III. in 1471, where a purchase of a tartan for the king and his queen is mentioned. King James V. wore tartan when he was hunting in the Highlands in 1538, and King Charles II. wore tartan ribbons on his coat at his marriage in 1662

THE royal seal of approval has been given to major face-lifts recently carried out on two historic community hubs in Caithness.
The official wraps were this week taken off the new-look Mey village hall and the Caithness Horizons visitor centre in Thurso at the start of Prince Charles' week-long stay at the Castle of Mey.


New-look centres get the prince's seal of approval - John O'Groat Journal and Caithness Courier

Britain's Prince Charles referred to his grandmother during a visit to a heritage centre.
The 60-year-old royal was at the Dunbeath Heritage Centre in Caithness, Scotland, as he discussed how close he had been to the late Queen Mother, who died in 2002 and would have been 109 yesterday (04.08.09)

So. . . what "clan" officially is HRH in? Is it Windsor? And I'm assuming that one cannot wear the colors that HRH and the BRF wear because it belongs to them?
Will somebody be fined if they do?
Inquiring minds wanna know. . .

The main clan is that of Stewart, there is no such clan as Clan Windsor. Charles wears the Balmoral, Stewart, Rothesey including the hunting, Lord of the Isles, Gordon, Balmoral. Nobody is allowed to wear the Balmoral without the permission of HM and that includes members of the royal family.
