What kind of man is the next King?

What kind of man is the next King?

This event is exclusive to Friends of Tortoise

How much do we really know about the man who will be King? A committed environmentalist, for sure, and an astute business person. But how does he interpret the line between work and family, as the next in line to the throne? How does he handle his emotional role, as a father and grandfather? What does he enjoy, what does he regret? What are his ambitions for the future – for himself, his family, and for the monarchy? What effect will Charles’ character have, if any, on the way the rest of us relate to the Royals, and on the running of the institution itself?
