Prince Charles just made history.

On Sunday, he passed a landmark milestone to become the longest-serving Prince of Wales in history, with 59 years, one month and 15 days on the job.

Charles, 68, was invested as the Prince of Wales by his mother Queen Elizabeth in 1969 at Caernarfon Castle when he was 20 years old. The record was previously held by his ancestor, Edward VII, son of another long-reigning monarch — Queen Victoria — who became King on January 22, 1901.
