Prince Charles to be 13

Nov. 12, 1961 - Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, will become a teenager Tuesday on his 13th birthday. Prince Charles attends Cheam, a preparatory school founded in 1645. He is the first heir to the throne to attend such a school. The others have had private tutors. He appears to have no great talent for sports and is reported to be an average student. But he is attentive and polite, sensitive and impressionable, and conscious of his position.
