Prince Charles has lived in quite the matriarchal household, with his mother being the Queen of Britain.
However, Her Majesty was not the “feisty” female influence for the prince growing up.
According to an expert there was another woman in young Charles’ life who was his inspiration.
Princess Anne was the real inspiration to brother Charles, an expert claims.

Judi James commented on an official portrait of Charles, noting how his body language signals were created by his upbringing.
“Charles had a very strong mother figure in his life who – although often being seen as rather remote and hands-off – was also the equivalent of his boss in terms of his royal ‘career’,” the body language expert remarked.
However, as was the case for the aristocracy at the time, Charles did not spend a huge amount of time with his mother.
Charles had a governess between the age of five and eight. He attended boarding school, which he reportedly did not enjoy, preferring to be at home.
However, his sister was a close influence on him, Judi said.
“He also had a very strong, dominant father figure in Philip plus an equally feisty and more confident younger sister Anne,” the expert added.
But how has his upbringing shaped him?
Judi said: “These influences seem to be etched on his facial expression and body language traits, emerging as signals of anxiety, like his steepled brows and his self-comfort hand rituals.
“But he also shows symptoms of a rather laid-back sense of humour too, with his asymmetric smile and often quite piercing eye gaze.”
From the heir to the throne to the Monarch, what did the Queen’s body language for her recent speech reveal.
According to Judi James, a leading body language expert, the Queen’s conduct indicated a slew of emotions.
She also revealed what Prince Charles was thinking.
According to the body language expert, the heir to the throne was “bordering on distress”.
She said: “With his steepled brows and down-turned mouth Prince Charles’s face might have been puckered into an expression of concern bordering on distress for most of this ceremony.”
Prince William, compared to Prince Charles, is “the confident man to Charles’ anxious boy”, Judi has said.
Prince William’s wedding day was a stark contrast to Charles’, Judi revealed.
The royal line of succession – who outranks who?
The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.
It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.
Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.
The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.
Prince Charles, 70, is currently second-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 37, his oldest son.
Then comes Prince William’s children, George, five, Charlotte, three, and Louis, almost one, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 34. Prince Harry is succeeded by his son Archie Harrison, born in May.
