Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, celebrated her 75th birthday on July 17, marking the special day by releasing a new portrait.

The portrait shows a relaxed Queen Consort as she sits smiling in her lush garden at her home in Wiltshire, with a cup of tea and a bowl of peaches.

Wearing a stunning blue, floral dress and her signature blow-out hairstyle, Camilla was celebrated by the Royal family with an image posing with her dog, Beth.

The photographer responsible for Camilla’s new portrait, Chris Jackson, said it was a rare moment to capture the Duchess somewhere she felt so relaxed.

“A very Happy Birthday to HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, 75 today! Pictured on the steps of her shepherd’s hut at home in Wiltshire with the lovely Beth,” he wrote on Twitter.

“Really special to photograph The Duchess of Cornwall at her home in Wiltshire for her 75th Birthday. I’ve spent many years travelling around the world photographing The Duchess on Royal Tours and engagements so it’s lovely to photograph her somewhere she feels so relaxed.”

Fans of Camilla flooded social media with birthday appreciation posts, celebrating the Duchess with well wishes.

The Duchess thanked everyone for their lovely birthday wishes on Twitter.

In a recent interview with British Vogue, the Duchess discussed her birthday and admitted to feeling discomfort regarding her age.

“You know, my mother died when she was 72, so I’ve outlived my mother, which is quite strange,” she said in her special interview.
