Equivalent document for Project Charter is Project Brief. It is created in Starting Up a Project process.
PRINCE2 has ONE template called PLAN. In that template, there is one heading called Schedule. Under this heading, the PM is free to use a) Project timeline b) gantt chart c) task assignment with start and end date etc. The idea of this in PRINCE2 is, the plan is NOT JUST TIMELINE, it is also about constraints, assumptions, scope, working agreements with teams, roles and responsibilities etc.

Please look at Appendix A in the manual for description of a) Project Brief and b) Plan
