See Camilla's New Birthday Portrait - by One of Princess Diana's Favorite Photographers

An official portrait of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall has been unveiled, ahead of Camilla's 70th birthday on Monday.

When asked about the Duchess becoming a member of the monarchy late in life, O'Grady, speaking during a Clarence House birthday garden party on Thursday, replied: "It's taken a lot of guts, you know, it really has".

The last official portrait of prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, which celebrates the 70's, the duchess of Cornwall, looks at a glance to Lady Diana.

The royal couple seem very content, both in public and private, and it's clear that Camilla has made Charles very happy.

Family portrait: Testino was also invited to take this photograph for Princess Charlotte's Christening.

Camilla is wearing a smart navy coat dress by one of her most trusted designers, Fiona Clare, with her favourite pearl choker and earrings.




The Duchess reaches her milestone birthday in good form.

Charles, who will celebrate his 70th birthday next year, is meanwhile, in a British wool suit, light blue tie and pocket handkerchief. In a statement, the photographer said he was "honored" to capture the couple "on this very important date", noting that after he first photographed her in 2006 he "discovered a kind and handsome person with a wonderful sense of humor".

To mark the occasion, Prince Charles threw Camilla a party with 250 family and friends at the couple's Gloucestershire residence, Highgrove House.

The photographer said: 'I'm honoured to document their royal highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall on this very important date.

Prince Charles' wife Camilla is turning 70 with few complaints, although she admits her feet are sore after a long day of royal duties. She recently hosted a star-studded reception at Clarence House.

Her step-sons Prince William and Prince Harry attended along with her own children Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes.
