Enchanting childhood photos show King Charles III’s early love of photography

He’s already one of the most photographed people in British history. And as King Charles III prepares to be crowned in Saturday’s coronation, an army of news photographers will be jostling to take his picture once more, not to mention the tens of thousands lining the streets, cameras in hand.

But it all could have been so different. Had his great-uncle King Edward VIII not abdicated, making his grandfather king and placing him directly in line to the throne, Charles would have led a very different life as a less important Royal.

Perhaps then, he’d have had more time to follow one of his passions, and turn it from hobby to profession. Could he, in fact, have been on the other side of the lens, as a working photographer – like his mother’s cousin, Lord Lichfield?

It’s a strange thought, given the Royal Family’s vexed relationship with photography over the years, from the involvement of paparazzi in Diana’s death, to Prince Philip losing his temper with photographers, to the ill-fated snapshot of Prince Andrew (himself a keen photographer) that contributed to his recent downfall.
