The couple are hosting a private party at their Highgrove home today.

Her step-sons Prince William and Prince Harry attended along with her own children Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopes. To celebrate the occasion, she has hosted not one, but two birthday parties.

An official portrait of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall has been unveiled, ahead of Camilla's 70th birthday on Monday.

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

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

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.

Well, the most likely scenario will be that Camilla takes the title of "Princess consort" rather than "Queen".

Congress workers threatened me over 'Indu Sarkar', says film-maker Bhandarkar
A statement issued by the city Congress later said its workers "scuttled" Bhandarkar's scheduled press conference. I don't understand the demand that they (the Congress) want to watch the movie before its release.

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

When a queen marries, her husband doesn't automatically become "King", unless he's already a king in his own right - hence why Queen Elizabeth's husband isn't "King" Philip.

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.

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

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will return to their duties in Devon and Cornwall later in the week.
