Prince Charles is ramping up his preparations to become the next king of England, with his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles by his side. As he celebrated his 50th year as the Prince of Wales on Monday, Prince Charles committed to undertake a staggering 20 engagements across Wales this week in preparation for his future role.

Following his investiture at Caernarfon Castle on July 1, Prince Charles started bracing himself for a series of royal engagements in the coming weeks. The action will kick off this week as he and Camilla attend at least 20 engagements across his jurisdiction.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are set to visit the Prince’s Trust Call Center at Nantgarw to meet the people who assist at least 72,000 children across Britain with their needs by helping them get in touch with Prince Charles’ charity over the phone. The royal couple will also visit the Ty’n-y-Coed Forest to bestow the Prince of Wales Trophy to the winner of the British Horse Loggers Woodland Management Award. During the visit, Prince Charles and Camilla will also meet all the horse loggers in the area and learn about their work.

Among the other engagements on Prince Charles and Camilla’s diary this week are the Royal Glamorgan Hospital, the Llandovery Lunch Club, Victoria Park, the Patti Pavilion, the Morriston Tabernacle Chapel and the Carmarthen Market. All these engagements and meetings are meant to prepare him for running the country when he takes over the British throne.

Even before he celebrated his 50th anniversary as Prince of Wales on Monday, Prince Charles had already been assuming some of Queen Elizabeth’s roles in the monarchy. According to reports, he and Camilla have been attending meetings on the Duchy of Lancaster at Clarence House lately as he gets the hang of the private estate that generates £20 million annual income for the sovereign.

Prince Charles will assume his kingship with Camilla as soon as Queen Elizabeth dies. The couple will relocate to Buckingham Palace once he becomes king. Although majority of the British public prefer Prince William as their next king, it is unlikely that Prince Charles will give up the throne for his son because the Queen has been preparing him for his role since he was a child.
