Prince Charles, Count of Flanders (Dutch: Karel, German: Karl; 10 October 1903 – 1 June 1983) was a member of the Belgian royal family who served as regent of Belgium from 1944 until 1950.

His regency ended when his elder brother, King Leopold III, was allowed to return to Belgium.Shortly after returning and resuming his monarchical duties, Leopold abdicated in favour of his son Baudouin.

During the Second World War Charles was known as General du Boc, in order to hide his identity for security reasons.

He had an association with RAF Hullavington where many top officers from Allied nations were based or transported to and from.
