If we are going to begin a thread about Prince Charles' life in picture, I think it is only fair to contribute pictures to start the thread off.

I'm enchanted to see the pictures of Queen (then Princess) Elizabeth with the baby Charles. She looked so fresh and young, positively beaming with her first child, even with her outlandish 40s hat. :p One forgets just how young she was when Charles was born.

I can't believe how cute PC was as a small child. He really went through an akward and homely stage, IMHO, for a long time. I think now since he seems happier and more confident, he is better looking. It is really nice to see regular family pictures, not just the ones where everyone is posed for a photoshoot.

I think that the best photos of Prince Charles are natural pictures that are taken with him looking straight into the camera. That way, there aren't any odd angles that emphasize particular features.:flowers:

I have found a couple of photos, both from "Life". The first shows Charles with Tricia at a White House Reception. The second shows Charles, Anne, Tricia, Julie, and David.

Prince Charles Birthday: As The Royal Turns 63, A Look Back At His Youth (PHOTOS)

anbrida 06-12-2012 10:36 PM

I don't know whether this little story has been told before or not.

An officer called Hugh, who went on skiing vacation with Charles and Diana, died in Avalanche. At that time, his wife was 6-month pregnant. Diana flied his body back to England, and since then she called Hugh's widow every Sunday for 3 years to ease her grief. Because she knew that Sunday evenings were a lonely time for a woman who lost her husband.

Tsar bobo Iv 06-13-2012 12:47 PM

that sounds like Diana:heart: i hope she did that because that is a really heart warming story

Nice Nofret 06-13-2012 01:35 PM

It happend in Klosters (Switzerland) and the royal party went down Gotschna-Slope; it was closed that day; cause avalanches were thought possible.

Diana didn't fly the body back (she was no pilot AND she did return with the rest of the royal party); so if the body was flown back it may be, that it was in the same plane (or another) but surely NOT Diana flying the thing ;)

sirhon11234 06-13-2012 04:37 PM

I don't think Anbrida meant that Diana literally flew the plane. More of accompanied the body back to Britain. As Charles did when she died. ;)

Not the 'royal party'. Diana was back in the villa. Charles insisted on skiing off-piste wich generated the avalanche that killed his friend.

Could we have some credible evidence that:

a. Charles alone insisted that they ski off-piste, as opposed to them usually doing so, and;

b. Charles party caused the avalanche and killed his friend.

As anyone with mountain experience knows, avalanches are most often environmentally generated and routinely occur without external "cause". That is not to say that skiers, boarders, heli-skiers and climbers do not set off avalanches.

Mermaid1962 07-14-2012 05:53 PM

Here's an excerpt from an article I found:

Even the most thoughtful Charles-watchers raise questions about his judgment. Such questions dominated the national news last March, when the prince and his guests on a day's outing in the mountains near Klosters, Switzerland, schussed down an off-piste ski slope. The royal party released an avalanche that buried two of its members and almost swept away the prince himself. Maj. Hugh Lindsay, one of Charles's closest friends, died beneath tons of snow. Another friend, Pattie Palmer-Tomkinson, required four months in a Swiss hospital to repair her mangled legs.

Appalled by the accident, many journalists accused the prince of deadly nonchalance. But Charles's admirable grace under pressure disarmed his detractors. Waiving diplomatic immunity, he made several trips back to Switzerland to assist investigators, who eventually cleared him of any personal responsibility. "Charles was the host of the party, not the leader," Palmer-Tomkinson explained. "We all knew what we were getting into." Nevertheless, says a friend, "Charles will always have this terrible accident on his conscience. He is a deeply caring man."

And here's the link:A Dangerous Age - The British Royals, Prince Charles, Princess Diana : People.com

And here's another article: http://www.people.com/people/article...098574,00.html In this one, Charles was heard muttering that he blamed himself.

Artemisia 07-14-2012 06:02 PM

Thank you, Mermaid1962 for posting the excerpt and the link to article. :smile:

Tragic as the incident was, I do not see how it can be blamed on the Prince - and apparently, neither did the Swiss authorities.
An error of judgement from all those involved? Certainly. But why put all the blame on one person who was not even the "team leader"?
As for the second article, and the Prince's words "I am to blame" - a survivor's guilt is a terrible thing, especially if you lose a close friend.

How true Artemesia. Many of us go through life saying "If only" - but adults - including those involved in this accident - are responsible for their own actions.

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

These are lovely, thanks! And welcome to the forums.

GarryWalker 12-25-2013 10:50 AM

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.

Tony Oliver 12-25-2013 03:29 PM

Nice Pics. Why don't you try writing to his official website? Homepage ?

cepe 12-25-2013 03:37 PM

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.

cepe 12-25-2013 07:25 PM

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.

GarryWalker 12-25-2013 07:49 PM

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.

cepe 12-25-2013 07:57 PM

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

GarryWalker 12-25-2013 08:08 PM

I will do! Thankyou Cepe, also thankyou Tony Oliver - I have filled out the contact form on the POW official website!

Tony Oliver 12-26-2013 05:45 AM

No worries.

GarryWalker 12-26-2013 06:02 PM

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.

cdngirl 12-26-2013 10:56 PM

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

GarryWalker 12-27-2013 08:12 PM

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.
