He doesn't exactly need the money, but Prince Charles is planning to claim the government pension he qualifies for when he turns 65 tomorrow.  

Palace officials say he'll contribute the pension to a charity that helps elderly people.

Charles is entitled to about $175 a week because of his service in the Royal Navy and voluntary contributions he has made.

Although he's reaching retirement age, Charles still hasn't started the job he was born to do.

He's been heir to the throne since his mother, Queen Elizabeth, became monarch in 1952.
