An official portrait of the Duchess of Cornwall, alongside the Prince of Wales, has been released to mark her 70th birthday.

Said Testino of his latest portrait: "I'm honoured to document their royal highnesses the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall on this very 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 lovely person with a wonderful sense of humour.

The Duchess reaches her milestone birthday in good form.

The picture came as the Duchess of Cornwall vowed to tackle the scourge of loneliness in old age - by becoming patron of Dame Esther Rantzen's charity The Silver Line.

Camilla is said to not have been angry towards Diana as some might expect, and was instead sympathetic towards her. Nearly 20 years later, it is touching to read of the good relationship that Princes William and Harry are said to have with their step mother.

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

The Duchess of Cornwall shares her birthday with another famous personality - German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Camilla has always had soft spot for animals and their welfare. Charles went on to marry Diana Spencer in 1981 but within a few years he had returned to Camilla, conducting an extra-marital affair, as Princess Diana also sought comfort from officer James Hewitt.

A birthday party for the duchess was held at Prince Charles's Highgrove estate on Saturday.

Prince Charles and Princess Diana got a divorce in 1996.

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

Do you think the public would accept a Queen Camilla, should Charles ascend the throne?
