The Duchess of Cornwall turns 70

The Duchess of Cornwall is celebrating her 70th birthday today after a weekend of celebrations to mark the milestone occasion.

Camilla invited family and close friends to Highgrove House on Saturday night for a private party to celebrate her birthday.

Those who attended included the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Camilla’s children.

The Duchess of Cornwall’s former husband, Andrew Parker Bowles, was also there. Despite his many affairs during their marriage which led to an eventual divorce in 1995, they remain good friends.

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh were reportedly invited but opted to remain at Windsor Castle.

This party was the second held in celebration of the Duchess of Cornwall’s birthday in a matter of days.

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

Among the guests were actress Joanna Lumley, TV presenter Paul O’Grady, and ballerina & Strictly Come Dancing Judge, Darcey Bussell.

Despite becoming a septuagenarian, Camilla’s birthday is a low-key affair.

One reason for the down to earth festivities may be because her summer birthday falls just a month before the 20th anniversary of Diana, Princess of Wales death on 31 August. Having a lavish celebration would be seen by many as disrespectful, and although Camilla has been a member of the Royal Family for 12 years now, she still needs to tread lightly protecting her image with the public.
