Camilla’s two par­ties for her 70th birth­day

The Southland Times - - WORLD -

BRI­TAIN: It was a cel­e­bra­tion fit, if not quite for a Queen, then cer­tainly for a Duchess.

The Duchess of Corn­wall has seen in her 70th birth­day in fine style, with a party for 250 friends and fam­ily mem­bers at High­grove: her sec­ond in three days.

Thrown in her honour by the Prince of Wales, the pri­vate party saw the Royal fam­ily show their sup­port with guests in­clud­ing the Duke and Duchess of Cam­bridge and Prince Harry.

Con­trary to ini­tial re­ports that she planned just a small fam­ily gath­er­ing, the Duchess has en­joyed two cel­e­bra­tions this week, hon­oured with an of­fi­cial re­cep­tion at Clarence House this week among the great and the good.

There, for­mer staff and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of her char­i­ties wished her a happy birth­day, along with celebri­ties with whom she has shared sev­eral char­ity causes.

By con­trast, the High­grove party on Satur­day night, lo­cal time, was for close friends. - Tele­graph Group
