A new portrait by Mario Testino

To mark Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall's 70th Birthday on July 17th 2017, we are releasing this new portrait by Mario Testino.

The picture was taken in May 2017 in the Morning Room at Clarence House. The Duchess wears a navy blue dress coat with white embroidery by Fiona Clare, while The Prince wears a suit, shirt and tie.

Photographer Mario Testino said "I'm honoured to document Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall on this very important date. I first photographed The Duchess after her wedding to The Prince on a commission from British Vogue in 2006, and discovered a kind and beautiful person with a wonderful sense of humour. Doing this latest assignment to celebrate Her Royal Highness's 70th birthday is a true honour."
