The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles have posed for an official portrait in celebration of her 70th birthday on 17 July. The photograph, which was taken in May by famed photographer Mario Testino, shows Charles and Camilla in the morning room of their London home, Clarence House. The Duchess can be seen wearing a smart navy coat by one of her favourite designers, Fiona Clare, which she accessorised with a pearl necklace and earrings. Her husband, 68, is in a British wool suit, light blue tie and pocket handkerchief.
Photographer Mario said he was "honoured" to document the royal couple on such an important date. "I first photographed the Duchess after her wedding to the Prince on a commission from British Vogue in 2006, and discovered a kind and beautiful person with a wonderful sense of humour," he said. "Doing this latest assignment to celebrate Her Royal Highness' 70th birthday is a true honour."
