Indeed some fans, such as her biographer Penny Junor, have suggested that far from being one of the biggest dangers to the House of Windsor and the monarchy in general, warm, earthy and intelligent Camilla is now one of its biggest assets.

The private party on Saturday at Highgrove for 250 friends and family, thrown for Camilla by husband Charles, the Prince of Wales, was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince Harry, The Telegraph reported.

She has a particular interest in literacy, animal welfare, osteoporosis but more striking is her work with rape crisis and domestic violence charities and the support she has given to campaigns against human trafficking and female genital mutilation.

Camilla Parker-Bowles has been celebrating her 70th birthday in style all week with one celebration after another.

Charles went on to marry the late Lady Diana Spencer and Camilla Wednesday Andrew Parker Bowles. Despite his many affairs during their failed first marriage, the two remain good friends.

Twelve years after their controversial civil wedding, which followed years of public rancour over their relationship, the portrait makes clear that they are very much a partnership of equals as they move, albeit reluctantly, ever closer to the throne.
