The idea of an investiture of the PoW was a 20th century creation. It wasn't done in earlier times and really isn't necessary.

As I expect William to be PoW before Charles' coronation I doubt that they will even bother as the main reason was to allow Charles to swear allegiance to the monarch - William will have done that at the Coronation - whether as PoW or as Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge.

Edward VIII swore allegiance twice I believe - at the coronation and then again at the investiture but that was when Britain was the world's leading power.

Don't forget that it isn't a given that William will even be created Prince of Wales. I suspect that Charles will sound out the Welsh Assembly about this issue and let them decide rather than act unilaterally. Many Welsh people (not necessarily a majority) don't like having and English Prince as Prince of Wales and find it offensive. Others, of course, don't care.

How long Charles will be King is also not a given - if he lives as long as his mother he will have a reign of 22 years given that is the difference between them in ages - hardly a 'short reign'.
