The royal family has shared a series of portraits to celebrate the Duchess of Cornwall's 75th birthday. 

Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, was all smiles as she posed in a summery garden setting for her official 75th birthday portrait. The photographs, taken by Getty Images royal photographer Chris Jackson, show the royal looking radiant in her Wiltshire home, dressed, quite fittingly, in a blue floral dress.

Celebrating her birthday on Sunday, 17 June, the Duchess showed off the fruits of her labour, with her homegrown peaches and flourishing flowers.

“I love the vegetable garden. I’m very proud of my white peaches. My husband is an excellent gardener, and we’re quite competitive about our fruit and vegetables,” she revealed in a recent interview with her son, food writer Tom Parker Bowles.

Also in the birthday portraits featured the Duchess’ furry companion, her pet Jack Russell Terrier, Beth, sitting comfortably on her lap and posing for the camera.

The Duchess will be celebrating this week by joining her husband, Prince Charles, for their annual holiday to Devon and Cornwall.
