A Prince stuck in the royal waiting room
Now 72, the Prince of Wales still is in the waiting room. He presides over 400 charity organizations, with a gentle smile and a kind word for everyone; he is publicly serious and intimately mischievous.

Now 72, the Prince of Wales still is in the waiting room. He presides over 400 charity organizations, with a gentle smile and a kind word for everyone; he is publicly serious and intimately mischievous.
Since his young age, Charles enjoyed many delights. Perhaps out of boredom, but also because he is a hedonist – and can afford to be. Polo, girls, studies, weapons learning, and a taste for uniforms and wellcut suits… The Prince has always been a dandy.
But there also are his affairs – including Camilla Shand (ex-Parker Bowles). In 1981, his wedding with Diana was at the front page of all newspapers around the world, as was the birth of their two kids, their divorce, then the death of the rebellious princess in a car crash in Paris in 1997. After some time, Camilla reappeared – actually, she never really disappeared. She is the love of his life.
Michel Faure examins the man, prince, husband, father and now grandfather, who sometimes drives a James Bond-like Aston Martin (fueled with biodiesel), who was a green activist ahead of his time, who loves to garden, to do some magic tricks, to paint watercolors. He heals himself with homeopathy, played cello in his youth and takes a cold shower every morning. Briefly said, he is an old kid-to-be-king, who keeps his mysteries.
