He was once mocked as an eco-prince
As King, can Charles still sell his beloved organic jam?
Prince Charles has been a successful businessman over the past few decades, selling, among other things, sustainably produced organic produce. Heart issue brought him a lot of ridicule. Should he give up on her now?
Charles has always been ridiculed for his environmental commitment in Britain – here he visits the Oxford Botanic Gardens.
As Prince Charles III. (73) Build a small business empire. The Prince of Wales was active as a hotelier, restaurant owner and property manager. He even launched his own perfume this year. But his heart project has always been his noble organic brand Duchy Originals.
Charles has turned Duchy Originals into a successful small business. It now sells more than 200 different foods such as sausages, jam and biscuits in UK supermarkets.
But that may be the end of it now. As the new king of Great Britain, he may continue to act as a businessman, but there are clear rules within the monarchy.

Will William take over the company?
Members of the royal family are free to act in some businesses, while others are more or less tied to their jobs within the royal family. No one will argue in the Charles perfume line. But his organic brand Duchy Originals is largely owned by The Prince of Wales Foundation and will likely be run by the new Prince of Wales in the future.
The address is not set automatically. But everyone expects Charles to appoint his eldest son, William (40), the new Prince of Wales. William has already inherited Charles’ titles as Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothsay, and can look forward to a huge profit.
Charles earned CHF25 million last year through his management of real estate and real estate. However, most of the money goes to the many charities of the British royal family.
He mocked his green commitment
It might be a little hard for Charles to let go of Duchy Originals. After founding Duchy Originals in 1992, Prince mocked on all sides with his idea of selling produce from organic farming. Because of his green commitment, the prince has been described as a “freak eccentric” and an “environmental prince”.
Today he is considered a pioneer in environmental matters, even if the green movement in Great Britain is still struggling. But with its organic brand, it has at least been an open door for other businesses.
Over 4 million sales now
Duchy Originals has grown continuously in recent years and now has a turnover of over CHF 4 million. But it seems that his son is the right person for this inheritance. Because William has also been involved in sustainable projects on several occasions.
In addition, Charles must have enough to do in the future: he, in turn, acquires many large estates and vast estates from his mother, Queen Elizabeth II (96), who died on Thursday.
