See Camilla's New Birthday Portrait - by One of Princess Diana's Favorite Photographers

The party was the second celebration of Camilla's birthday, which falls on Monday 17 July.

The royal couple seem very content, both in public and private, and it's clear that Camilla has made Charles very happy.

The picture, which was taken in May, was captured by celebrity photographer Mario Testino at Clarence House.

Prince Charles and Camilla were officially photographed in public for the first time in 1999 after a party at The Ritz hotel.

The duchess wore a navy dress coat with white embroidery by Fiona Clare; the prince, 68, wore a matching blue suit.

Her trademark hair has been freshly coiffed in a slightly softer style than usual by her personal hairdresser, Hugh Green. Pictured front row (l-r), Prince William, Prince George, the Duchess of Cambridge, Princess Charlotte, and the Queen.

The Duchess reaches her milestone birthday in good form.

The Peruvian photographer said that when he first met Camilla, more than a decade ago, he "discovered a kind and handsome person with a wonderful sense of humour".

He added: "I'm honored to document their royal highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall on this very important date". "But behind closed doors she appears to have provided the heir to the throne with the love and a normal life, away from his public role, that he has always wanted", the newspaper said in a short biography written for Camilla's birthday.

'The image is one of several that was taken that day.

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.

Royal Central will be providing special coverage of the Duchess of Cornwall's birthday throughout the day.

Camilla will be spending tomorrow privately with her family, including her two children, Tom and Laura, and her five grandchildren, and - if he can be persuaded not to work - her husband, the Prince of Wales.
