  • Prince Charles and guests

Camilla Parker-Bowles has been celebrating her 70th birthday in style all week with one celebration after another.

New picture of Charles and Camilla shot by Mario Testino released to mark milestone birthday.

United Kingdom television personality Paul O'Grady praised his friend for her "guts" in embracing her position in the royal family late in life.

She recently hosted a star-studded reception at Clarence House.

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

The same poll was run back when the pair were newlyweds, but unsurprisingly, only seven percent of recipients were of the opinion that Camilla should be queen.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will return to their duties in Devon and Cornwall later in the week.


Captured by world famous portrait photographer Mario Testino shows the couple posed, relaxed and smiling in the morning room at Clarence House.

In a statement, the Peruvian said that when he first met Camilla for her 2006 portrait, he "discovered a kind and lovely person with a wonderful sense of humor".

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

Royal Central will be providing special coverage of the Duchess of Cornwall's birthday throughout the day.

But it's a title which has been made specifically for her. She has two younger siblings.

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 always had soft spot for animals and their welfare.

The timing is a little awkward for the Prince and Duchess, coming as it does just a few weeks before the 20th anniversary of the death of Charles' first wife, Diana.
