The milestone for the Duchess of Cornwall was marked Monday with the release of an official portrait of Charles and Camilla.

The photograph, taken in May, shows Charles and Camilla in the morning room of their London home, Clarence House.

The Duchess of Cornwall turns 70 on Monday - 18 months before Prince Charles becomes a septuagenarian himself.

Camilla was initially blamed by some for Diana's unhappiness as she complained publicly about Camilla's continuing close relationship with Charles. Camilla has never chosen to use that title - presumably out of respect for Diana - and instead opted for the lesser title of "Duchess of Cornwell'". Her blue dress coat was by British designer Fiona Clare, The Telegraph said. The photographer also added that in 2006, at their first meeting, he had discovered "a person is attractive and generous, with a wonderful sense of humor".

'Doing this latest assignment to celebrate Her Royal Highness's 70th birthday is a true honour'. "In a statement, the latter said that he was very " honored " to have immortalized the couple " for this very important date ", that is to say, the 70th birthday of the Duchess of Cornwall.

Guests included Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge; while invited, the Queen and Prince Philip remained at home in Windsor. She recently hosted a star-studded reception at Clarence House.

Last week she undertook two "official" birthday engagements and on Saturday her husband threw her a champagne party at Highgrove, his private Gloucestershire residence, to which all her nearest and dearest were invited. Although these were not shot as official birthday portraits Their Royal Highnesses liked them very much and felt it would be nice to share one of them to mark the day'.
