No, Charles ends in 's' which means Charles' is the correct possessive form of Charles. You don't add another 's' after the apostrophe if the word ends in 's'.

I've actually been taught that both are correct but I suppose that Charles's is rather superfluous.

Maybe it's diff for American English and the Queen's English.

In American English, "Charles' " would be correct.

I did some ~research~ and apparently both are correct, but consistency is key.

I'm not a native speaker though, so what do I know

Okay soooo... this is gonna sound super dumb. You all know how amazingly intelligent I am And fluent in English. But I sometimes have problems with pronunciation, possibly 'cause most of my knowledge comes from the Internet, where things aren't pronounced. I was watching the movie "The Machinist" (awesome movie by the way) but I have noooo idea how to pronounce the title. Is it like "machine-ist"? Or is the "ee" sound shorter (almost like "Machynyst")? Any help?

(This is like the time where I pronounced "Requiem for a Dream" like "require", haha)

Btw, I added the tag "language" to all the "Learning..." threads I could find (and a few others) so we can find them easily.
I also think so.
