Camilla TURNS 75! Queen, William, and Kate wish Duchess of Cornwall on her milestone birthday
Senior royals including the Queen, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, wished the Duchess of Cornwall on her 75th birthday with a number of heartwarming photos.
Camilla is reportedly celebrating the milestone with an intimate family dinner hosted by the Prince of Wales at his Highgrove home in Gloucestershire. The Duchess' daughter Laura Lopes and son Tom Parker Bowles are expected to attend the soiree alongside her younger sister Annabel Elliot, who recently featured in an ITV documentary that followed the Duchess as she guest-edited the latest edition of the hit show 'Camilla's Country Life'.

Camilla thanked her fans on social media. "Thank you for all your kind messages and well wishes on The Duchess of Cornwall’s 75th birthday today!" @ClarenceHouse wrote on Twitter. The Duchess was seen in the photo wearing a blue floral dress from designer Sophie Dundas while posing with a cup of tea and a bowl of home-grown peaches in her garden.

Her son, Parker Bowles, recently penned a column for the 'Daily Mail' in praise of peaches, which is the essential ingredient in one of his mother's favorite desserts, peach melba. "My mother is a keen grower of white peaches (the subject of this month’s column was very much her idea) and they certainly don’t want for attention," he wrote.

"She will be having a small family dinner," a spokesman for Clarence House said of the Duchess' birthday celebrations. The milestone event comes amid a transitory period for the Monarchy. The future Queen Consort spoke of "exciting new prospects" in last week's documentary, presumably referring to her position in the Royal pecking order that would take on greater prominence.

"We don’t really want to talk about birthdays, do we?" the Duchess joked in an interview with the Daily Mail on Saturday, July 16. "Unfortunately, I can never lie about my age as it’s always brought up in a newspaper, so I just have to get on with it." Camilla showered praises on her family, especially her five grandchildren. She said she used a social media app called 'Houseparty' to stay connected with them during the pandemic as she was in Scotland and they were in England at the time. "I’m not sure if they [her grandchildren] think I’m cool at 75," she quipped. "But we do have a very close relationship and they keep me in touch with the world of youth – and TikTok," she added.
