London – Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall and wife of Prince Charles, celebrated her 73rd birthday in private on Friday, with no public events planned.
Clarence House, the couple’s official residence in London, posted a photograph of Camilla taken in the garden of their main home.
The offices of Charles’ mother, Queen Elizabeth II, his son, Prince William and his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, also tweeted birthday greetings to Camilla.
Buckingham Palace tweeted a photograph, apparently taken at a flower show, of Camilla and the queen smiling together.
Camilla and Charles, 71, have resumed public engagements this month after self-isolating in Scotland for several weeks following Charles’ mild infection with coronavirus.
The couple married in 2005 following years of controversy over their relationship. Camilla has been accepted as integral member of the royal family since then.
Charles, the heir to the throne, had married Lady Diana Spencer in 1981 in a ceremony that gripped the nation.
But Charles and Diana’s marriage was dogged by rumours of a continuing relationship with his former girlfriend, the then married Camilla Parker-Bowles.
In 1992, the government announced that Charles and Diana planned to separate.
