Christopher H. Charlton (March 27, 1883 - November 27, 1963) was a British magician known as the Royal Illusionist was noted for refusing to use live animals in his performances. He gave his performance in German and in French.

He met Prof. Hoffmann, who witnessed his show at Hastings in 1908.

In the early 1930s, he toured America when vaudeville was at its height.

Some of his routines he performed were the Magic Kettle, an artistic Rice Bowls presentation, and the Bathing Belle illusion (which he used his daughter Betty).

Chris was a close friend with Martin Chapender and Cecil Lyle.

His collection of books and periodicals is part of the Magic Circle library. His collection of magazines was the most complete at the time.
