he Prince of Wales is the nation’s longest serving heir to the throne, a position he has held since he was three years old.

With the Queen giving her blessing to Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall as a future King and Queen, it marks a significant milestone in the prince’s destiny and in his relationship with his mother.

The monarch, who has become the first British sovereign to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee, has called on the public to support the prince and the duchess when the end of her reign eventually marks the start of her son’s.

Charles himself will issue a statement on the Queen’s historic Accession Day on Sunday in honour of his mother’s record-breaking reign.

His future path to kingship had previously been boosted by the Queen, but never before has the monarch so directly referred to his future role as sovereign.

The tricky question of whether the prince would take on the non-hereditary role as head of the Commonwealth when monarch was resolved in 2018 when the Queen made a rare and public personal appeal at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London for Charles to be chosen for the duty.

“It is my sincere wish that the Commonwealth will continue to offer stability and continuity for future generations, and will decide that one day the Prince of Wales should carry on the important work started by my father in 1949,” she said.

World leaders confirmed he would eventually succeed his mother in the symbolic role when king.

Then the Queen paid her a poignant tribute to the prince at a party to celebrate his 70th birthday the same year.

She described Charles as “a duchy original” and “a dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history — and a wonderful father”, adding: “Most of all, sustained by his wife Camilla, he is his own man, passionate and creative.”

The words served as a glowing queenly seal of approval for a future king.

The past 10 years have already seen a royal family in transition.

In 2013, Charles opened the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Sri Lanka, representing his mother in the role for the first time.
