Who is Prince Charles, now King Charles III?

With the death of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, on Thursday, Prince Charles has finally become king of the United Kingdom and 14 other territories, ending a wait of more than 70 years, the longest for an heir in British history.

The task will be overwhelming. Her late mother was highly popular and respected, but she leaves a royal family that has seen her reputation tarnished and relations strained, including allegations of racism against Buckingham Palace officials.

Carlos will face these challenges at the age of 73, becoming the oldest monarch to occupy the throne in a lineage that dates back a thousand years, accompanied by his second wife Camilla, who still divides public opinion.

For critics, the new king is weak, vain, meddlesome and ill-prepared for the role of sovereign. He has been derided for talking to plants and obsessing over architecture and the environment, and will long be associated with his failed first marriage to the late Princess Diana.

His supporters say that is a distortion of the good work he does, that he is simply being misunderstood and that in areas like climate change he is ahead of his time. They state that he is thoughtful and cares about his fellow British citizens from all communities and walks of life. His charity Prince’s Trust has helped more than a million unemployed and disadvantaged young people since it was launched almost 50 years ago.

“The problem is that you’re in a situation where you can’t win anything. If you don’t do anything at all … they’re going to complain,” Carlos once said in a TV documentary. “If you try to get involved, do something to help, they also complain.”
