Royal Portrait by Cecil Beaton (1904-1980). Photograph depicting Prince Charles, Clarence House, September 1950.

Labels and date

Prince Charles, Clarence House
September 1950

Prince Charles was at the stage when he was interested in everything: a live wire, he never flagged in energy, even when those around him were exhausted. One minute he was up on a window-sill, giving an unexpected treat to the passers-by below, pulling at the curtain cords; the next he was climbing on to the sofa to take the cigarettes out of a silver box; then he would be absorbed with interest in the working of his mother’s snapshot camera.
