The Queen's birthday toast to Prince Charles will make you tear up

Posted November 18, 2018

Prince Charles' official 70th birthday photo montage in the player above.

The prince and the Duchess of Cambridge had been invited to the BBC to try out a new internet safety app. In the casual outdoor shots taken by Chris Jackson at Clarence House, the duchesses pose alongside their husbands, Prince William and Prince Harry, the Prince of Wales and Camilla, plus Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. When Prince William and Kate secretly hosted the recipients of the BBC Radio One's Teen Hero awards at Kensington Palace last month, a few photos were shared by the palace two days later.

Prince Harry has always been an advocate for mental health issues, especially in veterans, and Meghan has joined the fold wholeheartedly and become the fourth member of the Royal Foundation.


He said: "I had the absolute honour of performing for and meeting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge & the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for the annual @KensingtonRoyal Royal Foundation dinner".

"It means that you have lived long enough to see your child grow up". It was also the outfit that Meghan's Suits co-star, Abigail Spencer, wore to her royal wedding back in May.

She said: "It is rather like - to use an analogy I am certain will find favour - planting a tree and being able to watch it grow".

Not only did she pay tribute to Charles' greatness as a man and leader, but she also recognized what a brilliant dad he is to William and Harry, calling him "a wonderful father.' "Sustained by his wife Camilla, he is his own man, passionate and creative", she continued".

Tables were reportedly decorated with blue table clothes, candlesticks and flowers from Highgrove Royal Gardens, which is the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall's private residence.

But the majority were quick to come to the defence of the Prince, pointing out the entire point of the post - which was released on Clarence House's Twitter - was to celebrate Prince Charles' life.

She even made a joke, when she said that Charles is "in every respect a duchy original".

She ended the speech with another joke, directed at the organic food line Charles' started in 1990 called "Duchy Originals". Who's missing? Well, just his mother, Queen Elizabeth 11.

Earlier that day, reporters asked Prince Charles if he'll start slowing down at age 70. But Camilla was quick to chime in: "I doubt it".
