The low-lying island, which has a surface size of 9,521 square kilometers (3,676 square miles), was discovered for the second time by a Canadian air force photo squadron in 1948 and named after the newborn prince. It was previously discovered by a tugboat in 1932.

Hyloscirtus princecharlesi, a species of frog found in Ecuador, was found among specimens gathered for a museum in 2008 and was given the prince’s name in honor of his work promoting rainforest conservation and the fight against deforestation.

5. Carbuncle Cup

The new monarch was known for being outspoken when it came to modern architecture, and in 1984 when he called the National Gallery of London’s projected expansion a “monstrous carbuncle,” the organization was obliged to reconsider its plans.

The 36 F-35B fighter planes and four Merlin helicopters may be transported on the 65,000-ton ship. The propeller shaft was severely damaged when it broke down in late August 2022, forcing it to return to Portsmouth.
