Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, celebrates his 70th birthday tomorrow and will celebrate it with family and friends at Buckingham Palace in London.

Queen Elizabeth II, 92, will be the host of the celebration, private and which is expected to assist their closest friends, their closest friends and people who have had a great influence on the life of the prince, according to the media.

The heir to the crown has more and more official commitments to replace his mother, who, due to her advanced age, has decided to reduce her activity, especially trips abroad.

Along with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Charles made 600 commitments in the United Kingdom and abroad between 2017 and 2018, and it is estimated that throughout his life he has visited more than 100 countries.

The eldest son of Elizabeth II, born on November 14, 1948 in Buckingham Palace, sponsors more than 420 charities, but his main work is with the entity "Prince's Trust", which helps young people with few resources to find work or to start some business activity.

Carlos Felipe Arturo Jorge is the prince who has been heir to the crown of British history for the longest time and who has held the title of Prince of Wales for the longest time, which he received in 1958.

With almost 4 years of age, Carlos became heir to the throne when his mother assumed the crown in February 1952 for the death of King George VI while she was in Kenya.

Throughout his life, he has proven to be passionate about issues such as environmental protection and came to speak at the Paris climate summit in 2015.

He has also expressed himself in favor of the preservation of endangered species or architecture, which often earned him criticism from various sectors of the press.

Known for his sense of humor, the heir was received with honors in many countries and there is even a frog baptized in his honor after being discovered in Ecuador in 2008.

The endangered frog, yellow and black, is known by the name of Hyloscirtus Princecharlesi or Magnificent Arboreal Frog Prince Charles, in honor of its defense of the rainforests.

In addition, the Masai people in Tanzania granted him the title of "Cow-keeper" in 2011, in recognition of his work as a farmer, while the inhabitants of the island of Vanuatu, in the Pacific, made him this year "Mal Menaringmanu" (High boss).

In addition to his passion for the environment, the prince is fond of painting, to the point that a watercolor of his was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London in 1987.

Among other curiosities about his figure disclosed on the occasion of his birthday, it is known that his favorite tea is Darjeeling, which he drinks with milk and honey, and that he never has lunch.

On July 29, 1981, Prince Charles, 32, married Lady Diana Spencer, daughter of Count Spencer, but the union ended in 1992 and four years later the divorce was signed.

Prince Charles had with Diana of Wales two sons, Princes William and Henry, who bear the titles of Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex, respectively.

In April 2005, the heir to the crown married his lifelong friend Camilla Parker Bowles, who received the title of Duchess of Cornwall after the wedding in Windsor.

Grandfather of three children, the princes Jorge, Carlota and Luis (children of the Dukes of Cambridge), will add to the list next spring a new grandson after the expected birth of the son of the dukes of Sussex, Enrique and Meghan.

On the occasion of his birthday, the Prince of Wales has promised in a BBC documentary that he will not "meddle" in matters that he has defended until now when it happens to his nonagenarian mother, as a sign of the independence of the crown, and also that it will enforce the "constitutional parameters".
