For all of his accomplishments, Prince Charles’s love life was carefully choreographed. A slick public image was built for him, thanks to aides and the press. However, the reality is far different. His love life is the direct result of his mentors, not of the prince himself. And, as it turns out, it’s also a testament to the power of mentorship. So, if you’ve ever wondered how Prince Charles managed to get into so many relationships, this book is for you.
The title Prince was historically given to the heir apparent to the Portuguese throne, a position similar to the royal title. During the reign of King Edward, he was referred to as a prince. The title was later changed to the more common title of grand duke. The British crown later relegated the title to royal princes. Princes of England, however, were often given the title of Furst.
The German language uses a different term for the heir apparent. In some monarchies, the title is associated with a specific territory within the realm. For example, in Brazil, there are princes of Grao Para, the Netherlands, and Viana, Navarre. These titles are often passed on by courtesy and tradition, and are not official. In France, the princes of Bidache and of Battenberg are both descended from the grand ducal house of Hesse.
The title “prince” is derived from the Latin word “princess”, which means chief. A prince may be the son or grandson of a king or a queen. Princes usually have significant prerogatives, but there is no distinction between the two. This title is given to anyone who acts like a prince or has served in the royal household. This title is used to indicate a regal position and is an honorific for an individual of distinction.
