Prince Charles throws Camilla a 70th birthday party


The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles have posed for an official portrait in celebration of her 70th birthday on 17 July.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry were among guests at a glamorous shindig thrown by Prince Charles at Highgrove, in Glouc.

Camilla has just reached the average age of the people the charity helps and has reason to be thankful - as she was this weekend surrounded by friends at her birthday bash.

The Duchess of Cornwall's former husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, was also there. Despite his many affairs during their failed first marriage, the two remain good friends.

A series of relaxed portraits of the late Diana, Princess of Wales - taken just months before she died in 1997 - became some of his best-known portraits.

When a queen marries, her husband doesn't automatically become "King", unless he's already a king in his own right - hence why Queen Elizabeth's husband isn't "King" Philip.
