  • 1948–1952: His Royal Highness Prince Charles of Edinburgh[1]
  • 1952–2022: His Royal Highness The Duke of Cornwall
    • in Scotland: 1952–2022: His Royal Highness The Duke of Rothesay
  • 1958–2022: His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales
  • 2022–present: His Majesty The King

As the eldest son of the monarch, he automatically became in England the Duke of Cornwall and in Scotland the Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland upon the accession of his mother as queen.[2] His eldest son Prince William automatically received these titles on Charles's accession as king.[3]

In 1958, letters patent from the then sovereign made Charles the Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester,[4] and on 1 July 1969, Charles was invested as such during the investiture ceremony with a coronet and robes placed on him.[5] In 2021, he furthermore inherited the titles Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth, and Baron Greenwich upon the death of his father, Prince Philip.[6] When he became the British sovereign himself on 8 September 2022, these titles merged with the Crown.

Regnal name

In an announcement following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Prime Minister Liz Truss referred to Charles as King Charles III, the first official usage of that name.[9] Shortly afterwards Clarence House confirmed that he would use the regnal name "Charles III".[10]

There had been speculation that he might choose a different name, because the previous two monarchs named Charles are both associated with negative events in royal history: Charles I was beheaded in 1649, and Charles II reigned during the Great Plague and the Great Fire of London. The name Charles III is also associated with the Jacobite pretender, Charles Edward Stuart, who claimed the throne under that name in the 18th century. The most discussed alternative regnal name had been George VII, in honour of Charles' maternal grandfather,[11][12] although prior to succeeding to the throne, he denied discussing a regnal name.[13]
