Camilla Parker-Bowles has been celebrating her 70th birthday in style all week with one celebration after another.

The photos of Prince Charles and Camilla were taken in the Morning Room at Clarence House in May but have been held back to mark Camilla's milestone birthday.

And there was another celebration at the couple's Gloucestershire home in Highgrove this weekend for family and friends.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall during her birthday reception. Despite his many affairs during their failed first marriage, the two remain good friends.

The society stylist, although officially retired from the salon, still sees his favourite clients privately and is the only man the Duchess trusts to tend to her locks.

Camilla was initially blamed by some for Diana's unhappiness as she complained publicly about Camilla's continuing close relationship with Charles.

A series of relaxed portraits of the late Diana, Princess of Wales - taken just months before she died in 1997 - became some of his best-known portraits.

Fast forward 12 years and things are looking significantly up, with 39 percent of the public wanting her to take that title.

But the survey, for the Mirror newspaper, finds more people are opposed to it than support it.

Charles went on to marry the late Lady Diana Spencer and Camilla Wednesday Andrew Parker Bowles.

Clarence House won't be drawn on whether she will be called "Queen" when Charles accedes to throne.

The Duchess was recently filmed by ITV News cameras having a fit of giggles watching some traditional throat singing on tour in the far north of Canada.

The last official portrait of prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, which celebrates the 70's, the duchess of Cornwall, looks at a glance to Lady Diana.
