Previously unpublished photos of a young prince charles.

Hi there.

Whist searching through my late grandmother possessions I came accross a series of photos of prince charles that I assume she took when much younger.

I have no idea when or where the photos are from - but they appear to be of Charles out on a hunt.

Can anyone shed any light on when or where these photos were taken?

Many Thanks

Garry

Thankyou. My grandmother lived not far from Sandringham (about 10 miles) - but I think at the time these photos were taken she was resident in East London - she never spoke of them, but I have been finding out a lot I didn't know about her recently.

They are lovely photos. I would say that these pix are late 70's; early 80's. Was your grandmother based in London then or still nr Sandringham?

She only moved to Norfolk in the late 1980s - and prior to that had no connection to the Norfolk area (as far as I am aware). So there is a good chance these having nothing to do with Sandringham and it is just a co-incidence.

I've seen pix of Charles hunting in 1981 and age-wise it looks right but it is not the same hunt as the head gear is diferent. I'll continue to search.

Thank you, by the way, posting these pix - they are lovely.

No worries! I was absolutely shocked to find photos of royalty amongst my grandmothers photos - I had to do a double take! I posted these pictures to a couple of the popular forums in the hope I would get somewhere. The fact they are black and white to me implies they are pre-1980s - I was born in the very early 80s and there isnt a single black and white photo of me in my nans collection - this leads me to believe it was before hand...... someone on another site just posted this:

"Using pictures of his investiture as Prince of Wales and his first wedding may help narrow down the approx. date of your photos. Just his hairline is a tell-tale sign, and the fact that the length of his hair goes beyond the collar of his coat leads me to believe it may have been in his very early 20s."

As Charles was born in 1948 - that would place the photos somewhere between 1968 and 1973. Although this isn't certain.

Prince Charles favourite hunt is that of the Duke of Beaufort. Here is the link

Home Page

Perhaps if you contact them, they can help.I was uncertain because members used to have beige lapels to their hunting coats but I could so easily be wrong. Contact them and if it helps, let us know.

Good luck

No response as yet from either website - but I wouldn't expect so over the festive period. I decided to post the photos to reddit as well in the hope someone might know - does anyone else have any other places I could ask? The more people I ask - the greater the chance someone will know something.

You can try posting it on twitter, and linking it to @ClarenceHouse. The response might be quicker.

Good idea Cdngirl - I have given it a go.... no response as yet - from anyone on twitter - not much help on reddit either - although one guy has been able to identify all the war ships in my grandfathers old war photos..... My family would like to thank everyone for their help and ideas.
