HRH The Prince of Wales (Charles Philip Arthur George Mountbatten-Windsor) also Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Chester, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland (born November 14, 1948), of the Royal House of Windsor, is the son of Queen Elizabeth II and heir-apparent to the British, Australian, Canadian, New Zealand, and a number of other Commonwealth thrones. He is correctly referred to as His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales (or in Scotland, HRH The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay). Though commonly used, he ceased to be properly styled Prince Charles (and technically should not be described as such) following the accession of his mother to the throne in 1952, becoming Duke of Cornwall instead.
