As the Prince of Wales prepares to celebrate his birthday, we look back at the iconic images from the last 65 years.
The Duchess of Cornwall came face to face with artwork of herself and the Prince of Wales at a traditional art fair in India.
The Prince of Wales has recorded one of his favourite poems by Dylan Thomas to mark National Poetry Day.
The devastating impact of extreme weather disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan is a "telling reminder" of the human relationship with the natural world, the Prince of Wales has said.
"The devastating impact of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines should surely have been a poignant and telling reminder of the intimacy and interdependence of man's relationship with the natural world," Charles said at a meeting on tropical forests and climate change in London.
Typhoon Haiyan killed more than 4,000 people after it swept through the Philippines on November 8, affecting more than 11 million people.
Prince Charles, who celebrated his 65th birthday last week, insisted the facts showed extreme weather disasters were increasing as a result of man-made climate change.
"As the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Fifth Assessment Report so clearly tells us, the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events has increased, and is set further to increase, in many parts of the world, as a direct result of anthropogenic climate change."
Prince Charles is to launch a campaign to boost the numbers of young volunteers in a bid to curb gang violence.
Writing in the Mail on Sunday, the Prince of Wales said street murders can occur because young people lack structured activities and that he was inspired to encourage volunteering by the death of 16-year-old Jimmy Mizen.
Charles will join the Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition at Buckingham Palace this week along with 50 young people to launch a pledge campaign called #iwill.
Charles said that currently only 29 per cent of young people volunteer regularly, but wants 50 per cent of youngsters aged 10-20 to volunteer by 2020.
The Prince of Wales has been known to show off his dancing skills while away on official tours and in Sri Lanka he got another opportunity - doing the hokey cokey.
Charles clearly enjoyed his performance as he joined a group of mentally and physically disabled children taking part in a music lesson.
The impromptu dancing came on the last day of Charles and Camilla's 11-day tour of India and Sri Lanka.
Standing between a teacher and a girl Charles took their hands and walked into the middle of the room with the class singing "oh the hokey cokey" then performed all the actions.
The prince gamely joined in for a number of verses of the song but when a pianist continued playing he laughed and bowed out.
Prince Charles told the meeting of the Commonwealth heads of Government in Colombo that the importance and responsibility of the organisation's role in addressing the world's troubles should not be underestimated.

The Charter reaffirms the core values and principles of the Commonwealth. At this CHOGM, and guided by that spirit, the Commonwealth is being charged to confront the many issues affecting the security and well-being of its nations and peoples.
Prince Charles' 65th birthday celebrations nearly got out of hand when his jacket caught fire after he got too close to a temple oil burner.
The heir to the throne was stood by the burner lit with 65 lamps in his honour and for sale in an antiques shop in India.
The Prince's linen jacket was pulled out of the flames by a member of his entourage and he turned and joked: "How quickly did you put me out?"
Following the heated experience, the Prince of Wales was treated to a rendition of Happy Birthday by a group on a balcony as he walked past shops with Camilla.
Prince Charles has been described as the "most difficult person in the world" to buy a present for by his wife the Duchess of Cornwall.
The Prince of Wales celebrates his 65th birthday today and Camilla revealed that Charles's usual reaction to her presents is one of poorly disguised disinterest:
"I spend ages trying to find something that is really wonderful and then (he says) 'Oh, thank you very much".
"It so annoying. So he likes to make a list of things that he wants so you get it exactly right. I find this time of year impossible as it's his birthday and then it's Christmas, so you have got two in a row. Everybody else is easy but he is not."
However, the Duchess of Cornwall believes this year's present will please him: "Well, he collects a lot of things and it is something special - china - that I have found. It's what he really likes. And I know he will be happy with that."
Charles will be spending his birthday in India, before the Royal couple fly to Sri Lanka ahead of the start of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting tomorrow.
Prince Charles' birthday celebration will hopefully start on the plane over to Sri Lanka, the Duchess of Cornwall revealed - if she can tear her husband away from his work.
She said: "Perhaps we can have an early celebration, then, or celebrate on the aeroplane or something. But he'll stick with his papers, I know he will, while I am trying to sing Happy Birthday. I might just even have to hold up a sign saying 'Happy Birthday, Darling'."
Camilla said her husband likes marking the big day: "He does quite like celebrating. He quite likes birthdays.
"He said it was really nice in New Zealand last year when everyone gave him a bit of a party. He likes people giving him a cake, a bit of a sing-song."
Prince Charles will "never stop working" despite turning 65 and becoming eligible for a pension, his wife has said.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall let slip some details about her husband's working habits while on a tour of India.
– The Duchess of Cornwall
The thing is that he is not going to stop at this age. He never, ever stops working. He's exhausting. No matter what the day, he is always working.
I am hopping up and down and saying 'Darling, do you think we could have a bit of, you know, peace and quiet, enjoy ourselves together?'
But he always has to finish something. He is so in the zone you are outside... but he is always there in the zone, working, working, working.
The heir to the throne, Prince Charles, is officially a pensioner and his 66-year-old wife, the Duchess of Cornwall joked, "he can join in with me collecting the bus pass."
The Prince of Wales will turn 65 in India, where he is on an official tour with his wife Camilla, before the couple fly to Sri Lanka ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting tomorrow.
Camilla told the press in an impromtu interview her husband was "the most difficult person in the world to buy a present for".
However, she found Charles was always pleased to receive china.
The Duchess said: "Well, he collects a lot of things and it is something special - china - that I have found. It's what he really likes. And I know he will be happy with that."
