Paul O'Grady leads tributes to Camilla ahead of 70th birthday

A new photograph of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall has been released to mark her 70th birthday.

Said Testino of his latest portrait: "I'm honoured to document their royal highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall on this very important date".

Testino previously photographed Charles and Camilla in 2006 on their first wedding anniversary and took the official engagement photographs of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge in 2010.

Doing this latest assignment to celebrate Her Royal Highness's 70th birthday is a true honour.

She has accompanied him on many foreign trips and has become a familiar figure at royal events.

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.




Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, revealed in a recent conversation that her five grandchildren enjoy a bit of Harry Potter - and that Charles is a fantastic storyteller who leaves them "spellbound".

On Thursday, the 70-year-old hosted a star-studded garden party at Clarence House.

Camilla's relationship with Charles has attracted worldwide scrutiny, but the pair finally Wednesday in 2005 after years of controversy at Windsor Guildhall. Andrew and Camilla have remained good friends despite their failed marriage and allegations against Parker about his many affairs during their relationship, BBC News reported.

Charles, who will celebrate his 70th birthday next year, is meanwhile, in a British wool suit, light blue tie and pocket handkerchief.

Charles and Diana separated in 1992 and were divorced in 1996, and following Diana's death in 1997, Camilla was gradually introduced to the public as Charles' partner.
