Photos From Prince Charles’ 70th Birthday + Queen’s Warm Tribute To Him

The Queen has praised the Prince of Wales in a touching speech made at his 70th birthday celebration at Buckingham Palace, where a host of Royals were seen arriving last night.

She described Charles as a 'dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history and a wonderful father'.

'It is a privilege for any mother to be able to propose a toast to her son on his 70th birthday.

'It means that you have lived long enough to see your child grow up. It is rather like —to use an analogy I am certain will find favour — planting a tree and being able to watch it grow.


'My mother saw me turn 70, of course. And she was heard to observe that 70 is exactly the age when the number of candles on your cake finally exceeds the amount of breath you have to blow them out', the Queen said.

The Duke of Edinburgh was among the Royals to turn out for the party after missing the Cenotaph commemoration in London on Sunday for the first time in 20 years. He and other well-wishers were pictured leaving Buckingham Palace after the celebrations.

Prince Harry was seen at the wheel travelling alongside the pregnant Duchess of Sussex and the Duchess of Cambridge was pictured riding alongside her husband, Prince William.
