Duchess Camilla turns 70:


Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -


Prince Charles’ wife Camilla is turn­ing 70 with few com­plaints, although she ad­mits her feet are sore af­ter a long day of royal du­ties.

The mile­stone for the Duchess of Corn­wall was marked Mon­day with the re­lease of an of­fi­cial por­trait of Charles and Camilla.

Royal of­fi­cials have said that Camilla will be known as the “princess con­sort” when Charles be­come king rather than take the ti­tle of “queen con­sort.”

She has ac­com­pa­nied him on many for­eign trips and has be­come a fa­mil­iar fig­ure at royal events. (AP)
