On being appointed Colonel-in-Chief of the Parachute Regiment, a few months before he was 30, The Prince asked to take part in the parachute training course.
The Prince felt he could not "look them in the eye" or wear the Parachute Regiment’s famous beret and wings badge unless he had done the course, he told his biographer, Jonathan Dimbleby, 15 years later.
"I felt I should lead from the front or at least be able to do some of the things that one expects others to do for the country," said The Prince.
Here he is wearing his parachute wings , just to prove he passed . https://www.royal.uk/the-prince-of-wales
He looks like the most stereotypical soldier I’ve ever seen.
Is Wallace a caricature of Prince Charles?
