Prince Charles has held a private party for the Duchess of Cornwall to celebrate her 70th birthday. In a statement, the photographer said he was "honored" to capture the couple "on this very important date", noting that after he first photographed her in 2006 he "discovered a kind and attractive person with a wonderful sense of humor".

Family and close friends were invited to the event on his Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire last night ahead of Camilla's actual birthday on Monday. Photographer Mario Testino described the Duchess of Cornwall as a "beautiful person".

Photographer Mario said he was "honoured" to document the royal couple on such an important date.

The Duchess of Cornwall shares her birthday with another famous personality - German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Camilla, whose birth name was Camilla Rosemary Shand has a full royal title- Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Rothesay, Countess of Chester, Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, according to Royal Central.

Camilla is the daughter of Major Bruce Middleton Hope Shand and the Hon Rosalind Maud Shand and was born on July 17, 1947 at King's College Hospital in London.

She added: "The thing is I then watch it back on TV a day later and cry again". The islander says she was "almost knocked out" by Theo's willy.

Pictures obtained by Daily Star Online show Camilla giggling with an 18-year-old Diana as they watched Charles competing at Ludlow Races in 1980.

Ms Seward said: The whole Diana situation has always been very hard for Camilla.

And in a huge blow to the Royal Family, the press leaked tapes of recorded phone conversations between Charles and Camilla in 1992 that exposed their affair - a moment that would be remembered as "Camilla gate". In 1995, Princess Diana was asked about Camilla during an interview: "Do you think Mrs. Parker-Bowles was a factor in the breakdown of your marriage?"

She had told how Charles had begged Camilla not to marry Andrew before their wedding in 1972, and that the news of their plans "broke the prince's heart".

There is still debate about whether the general public would accept her as Queen when Prince Charles becomes King.

And Charles' display of devotion to his second wife, whom he married in 2005, didn't end there.
