Duchess of Cornwall

Happy Birthday to the Duchess of Cornwall! The eldest child of Major Bruce Shand and the Hon. Rosalind Cubitt, she was raised in East Sussex and South Kensington, and was educated in England, Switzerland and France. In 1973, Camilla married Andrew Parker Bowles, with whom she had two children, before divorcing in 1995. In 2005, after a long relationship, she married the Prince of Wales at Windsor. After her marriage, she adopted her husband’s highest ranking subsidiary title, since the title of ‘Princess of Wales’ was too strongly associated with her predecessor. The Duchess of Cornwall undertakes duties on behalf of the Queen, and assists the Prince of Wales on his official duties. She has also raised awareness in areas including rape, sexual abuse, literacy, and poverty, as well as in osteoporosis. The Duchess is one of my personal favourite members of the Royal Family and I wish HRH a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!

A new photo of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, taken by Mario Testino in the Morning Room at Clarence House in May, was released to mark her 70th Birthday.

  1. Agreed! I find that the Duchess has the most wonderful disposition. She’s cheerful and friendly and tackles her duties with enthusiasm. I’ve also noticed how happy Prince Charles always appears when he’s in her company. I wish her joy!
