Ever wondered what sunglasses Prince Charles is wearing?

Persol sunglasses get the royal approval

The Prince of Wales has been spotted sporting a pair of Persol 3019s on several occasions already with this pair appearing to be one of his wardrobe staples.

Founded in 1917 in Italy, the name Persol originates from the Italian words 'per il sole', which means 'for the sun'. The name was chosen because each model offers maximum protection from the sun’s UV rays. The public began to see Persol as a fashion brand after an Italian film star Marcello Mastroianni wore a statement pair of Persol sunglasses and later Steve McQueen, Greta Garbo and George Clooney joined the list of celebrity followers.

The Persol 3019S in a classic pair of sunglasses for the gentlemen who appreciate the fine things in life. The Persol PO3019S is a classic and stylish pair of sunglasses for the elegant gentlemen, who appreciate the fine things in life. The model is available in a wide range of colours and lens tints to suit your individual style. The square shape suits most oval, heart and oblong faces the best and can be worn with casual clothes as well as a suit. Persol is excellent quality for an affordable price. They say that once you own a pair of Persols, you'll never want to have any other brand of sunglasses again. The frame is made of highest quality acetate that is durable and comfortable to wear. The Meflecto system comprises a metal or nylon cylinder, with a stainless steel core, these gave flexibility so would fit comfortably, firmly but not tightly to any face. Decorated with the signature Persol arrows on the arms, these sunglasses are a true royal choice.

Prince Charles is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II. He is the longest-serving heir apparent in British history, having held the position since 1952, therefore, he is the oldest person to be next-in-line to the throne since 1714. He was born at Buckingham Palace and he served in the Royal Navy from 1971 to 1976. Charles's interests encompass a range of humanitarian and social issues: he founded The Prince's Trust in 1976. He has two sons, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry. In 2005, he married Camilla Parker Bowles in a civil ceremony followed by a televised blessing service.
