He is presently in second position for the Earldom of Snowdon, a title presently held by his grandfather. He is also 19th in line for the British Throne as of 2016{Source}. Since the death of his grandfather, he has been known as Viscount Linley, prior to that he held the courtsey title of The Honourable.

Charles has primarily been educated in England. I cannot really say exactly where in England, but I have read that he currently attends Eton, as Prince William and Prince Harry did before him. He may have taken his A-Levels and recent done a GAP year.

As for duties to the Queen, he served as a Page of Honor from 2012-2015.
