Prince Charles Birthday: As The Royal Turns 63, A Look Back At His Youth (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Prince Charles said it himself just recently -- he is a timeless man, not one to shift his style with the trends. But he did admit that his fashion sense changes "every 25 years"... so what did the Prince of Wales look like in 1986? In 1961?

In honor of the royal's 63rd birthday today, we took a quick jaunt down memory lane to see the prince back in the day, before the gray suits, the distinguished gray hair and the friendly old-man smile.

Spoiler alert: there are bolo ties, Hawaiian shirts, fur hats, plaid skirts and more teeny bathing trunks than you can shake a scepter at.

Happy birthday, Prince Charles!
