Happy Birthday Camilla! Our top 20 photos of The Duchess of Cornwall

To mark The Duchess of Cornwall’s 75th birthday today, we’ve chosen our favourite 20 photos of Camilla.

1. Camilla was joined by one of her dogs, Beth, during a visit to Battersea’s Old Windsor branch. Beth helped The Duchess to unveil a plaque to mark the opening of the building. It is well-known HRH has a great relationship with her two dogs, who were rescued from Battersea.

4. One of the funniest images that went to front pages around the world came in 2015, during a visit to New Zealand. The Duchess was given a knife to cut a cake, and reminded her (surprised) husband to behave himself…

5. This photograph of Charles and Camilla marking their 15th wedding anniversary had to make our top 20. The couple marked the occasion at their Scottish home, Birkhall.

6. In 2021, a new photograph was released to mark the launch of The Duchess of Cornwall’s Reading Room. The future Queen Consort can seen with a stack of books wearing a red coat dress; it was snapped by Hugo Bernand.

Her Royal Highness wanted the Reading Room to be a ‘celebration of literature in all its forms’ and to be ‘a hub for literary communities around the world’.
