As the coronation approaches, here are some of the familiar buildings in the Capital which have a special link with Charles and his family.
5. Canongate Kirk
Canongate Kirk in the Royal Mile is the Royal Family's parish church when they are at the Palace of Holyroodhouse and they often attend services there.
It was also the venue for the Royal wedding in 2011 of Princess Anne's daughter Zara Phillips to rugby star Mike Tindall. Another couple who were due to be married at the church that day had to switch their wedding to Greyfriars Kirk instead.
Although Charles will become supreme governor of the Church of England as part of the coronation ceremony, north of the border the monarch is a member of the Church of Scotland. Photo: Alan Macdonald
6. Royal Yacht Britannia
The Royal Yacht Britannia, now a major tourist attraction docked at Leith, was a long-time favourite of the Royal Family and the Queen was visibly upset at its decommissioning in 1997.
But Charles' own memories of the ship may be mixed - he and first wife Princess Diana went for a cruise on Britannia as part of their honeymoon, starting from Gibraltar and visiting Algeria, Tunisia, Sicily, the Greek islands and Egypt.
Built in Clydebank and launched in 1953, Britannia sailed 1.1 million miles around the globe and visited 696 foreign ports in its 44 years of service. After its decommissioning, several cities competed to become its final mooring place and Edinburgh won. Photo: Yacht Events Ltd
7. St Giles Cathedral
Members of the Royal Family have attended countless services at St Giles Cathedral over the years to marking national occasions, but now its most important association has become with the lying at rest of the late Queen Elizabeth II following her death at Balmoral last year.
Since she died in Scotland, the pre-determined plan was that she would be brought to Edinburgh first before being flown to London for the state funeral. It gave people in Scotland the opportunity to pay their own tribute to Britain's longest-reigning monarch by filing past her coffin in St Giles. Charles and his siblings stood vigil over the coffin for a time. Photo: John Devlin
8. The Royal Mile
Edinburgh's most famous street, the Royal Mile - which is actually just over a mile - links the Castle at the top with the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the foot and has been a traditional processional route for kings and queens for 500 years. In between the Castle and the Palace are two other key buildings familiar to the Royals, St Giles Cathedral and Canongate Kirk. And the ceremonies which followed the Queen's death last year included the journey of the coffin from the Palace to St Giles when Charles and his siblings walked behind the hearse.
