Happy Birth­day Your Royal High­ness

Best - - CONTENTS -

On Wed­nes­day, the Queen’s old­est son will cel­e­brate his 70th birth­day.

The in­vites have gone out, Buck­ing­ham Palace’s state rooms are booked and the Queen is plan­ning a lav­ish cel­e­bra­tion, at which even Prince Philip is ru­moured to be mak­ing a rare ap­pear­ance.

All very grand. But while Prince Charles is known to en­joy a party with the best of men, I sus­pect, he will also ( like most of us) en­joy the sim­ple plea­sures on the big day. A kiss from Camilla, talk­ing to his sons and lis­ten­ing in de­light as his grand­chil­dren – Prince Ge­orge, five, and Princess Char­lotte, three – sing Happy Birth­day to him.

Happy Birth­day from us, Charles, we wish you the best of days! ED­I­TOR SIOB­HAN WYKES

The Queen is set to throw a jolly good bash for Charles, as he hits the big 7-0
