To mark the 73rd birthday of the Duchess of Cornwall, Clarence House have released a beautiful image of Camilla beaming with joy as she walks through the Royal gardens. Camilla will celebrate her birthday milestone tomorrow (July 17).
The Duchess of Cornwall will be marking her 73rd birthday tomorrow and to mark the occasion, Clarence House posted a beautiful image of the Duchess beaming the gardens.
Posting on Twitter, they said: “A new photograph of The Duchess of Cornwall has been released to mark Her Royal Highness’s 73rd birthday tomorrow.
“The photo was taken earlier this week in the garden of Clarence House.”
Although it is not known how the Duchess will be celebrating her birthday, it is clear she will be indulging in one of her favourite activities.
The Duchess’s love of her two rescue dogs – Beth and Bluebell became clear when they featured in several photos with Camilla during lockdown.
Last month Clarence House shared an adorable photo of Camilla out on a dog walk with the caption: “The nice thing about dogs is you can sit them down, you could have a nice long conversation, you could be cross, you could be sad and they just sit looking at you wagging their tail!”
This week, Camilla and Prince Charles returned to their home in London after spending coronavirus lockdown in Scotland.
The royal couple, who are future heads of the Royal Family, met with French President Emmanuel Macron to mark the 75th anniversary since Charles de Gaulle appealed to his countrymen to resist Nazi occupation.
This important encounter made Prince Charles and Camilla among the first members of the Royal Family to return to face to face engagements.
Although Camilla will be celebrating her birthday on Friday, her day could be overshadowed after Queen Elizabeth, who has not carried out any public engagements since lockdown, will be meeting national treasure Captain Moore at Windsor Castle.
Captain Tom Moore, 100, will be knighted by the Queen after he raised an astonishing £32 million for NHS charities during lockdown.
The investiture ceremony will be the first face-to-face meeting the Queen has carried out in four months and is likely to draw more attention than Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall’s birthday.
Buckingham Palace confirmed that social distancing measures would be observed during the investiture.
A Palace spokesman said: “The ceremony will be held in line with all the appropriate government advice, adhering to strict social distancing guidelines.”
The 100-year-old ex-serviceman shared his excitement about being invited to meet the Queen on Twitter.
Captain Tom wrote: “I could never have imagined this would happen to me.”
