Sex symbol of his generation: how King Charles III looked like in his youth and why women fought for his heart
Generations grow up with the monarchs of the UK. Many of the people who remember the young Prince Charles are no longer alive, and with them the memories of the ruler have disappeared forever. The 74-year-old king will be officially crowned in just a few days, but few people know what he looked like in his best years.
It's hard to imagine that the statuesque elderly monarch was once called the sex symbol of his generation. OBOZREVATEL decided to tell you and show you why women all over the world fought for Prince Charles' attention (to see the photos, scroll to the bottom of the page).
The son of the late Queen Elizabeth II has been involved in sports since childhood. He was often seen at polo games, where paparazzi eagerly photographed his naked torso while changing.
Prince Charles had an athletic physique with toned abs, broad shoulders, textured legs and pronounced muscles in his arms. This was visible not only when the monarch was without outerwear, but also when he wore tight-fitting shirts, T-shirts, etc.
The queen's son often appeared on the covers of magazines, which described his "military physique" and the "crowds of women" who craved young Charles's attention.
Despite the fact that the general public knows only about two main women in the future king's life - the mother of his children, Princess Diana, and the Queen Consort Camilla - Charles had other romantic interests in his past. Among them, for example, are actress Susan George and aristocrat Amanda Natchbull.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL reported that the coronation of Charles III will take place on May 6, 2023. The ceremony will traditionally take place at Westminster Abbey in London, and the service will be conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. The coronation celebrations will last three days, so the British will have an extra day off on Monday, May 8. All the details are in our article.
