Sigh, the BRF is completely unreasonably stingy with pics. They used to share so much more pic wise than they do now.

But happy birthday Charles!

It was a dear toast to Prince Charles on his birthday.
Great pictures and super jewels.
Camilla looked ravishing.

The pictures from the Spencer House Tea were delightfully happy.
Does anyone please know? Who were the other sixty-nine inspirational seventy year olds at the Age UK Tea at Spencer House? It would have been fun.

I agree. Just like I don’t understand why more photos like the ones they released yesterday aren’t released more often. I don’t think they are intrusive, but certainly gives enough of a look into the closeness between the royal family members.

It was the most personal and touching speech, or toast, I have ever heard from HM. It was just wonderful. I think she was very intent on making it a happy night for her son.

It’s so good to see HRH The Duchess of Kent there and Zara & Mike attended as well.

I quite agree: there was a wonderful family photograph of The Queen and Duke on their 60th Wedding Anniversary, but NOTHING like it for their 70th. I thought that was a shame.

On this big birthday, let's look at one of the PoW's wonderful endeavors. HRH has been in league with Ben Pentreath for many years, collaborating on residential projects.

The first time of Meghan meeting so many of our royal counterparts tonight. I’m surprised no one has mentioned this yet.

That's right Dman and I'm sure it was a great experience for Meghan. Of course most of the other younger members of the BRF wouldn't have an intimate knowledge of some of the European royals either.

Should be a wonderful night for Meghan meeting all the other Royals. Ten years ago they released more photos from Charles's 60 th but it was a few days afterwards.
The press managed good photos of Maxima and Mary leaving their hotels 10 yrs ago. So perhaps we just have to be patient and wait for photos to be released.

I love the photos we did get celebrating Charles' 70th. I'm sure that all who attended this party had a wonderful time. Its such a rarity that a person that turns 70 years old has both his parents there to celebrate with him and looking around the room, Charles had a lot to be happy about seeing family and friends all gathered together for a happy occasion.

I think so, too. And I love how she and Kate obviously coordinated their appearances. I doubt Meghan would have worn such large, glitzy earrings if Kate didn't, so I bet these two planned these outfits together. I just hope they are not as stupid as Diana and Sarah were who alled the media to create rifts between them which the media then could publish and enjoy. I love eg how Maghan shows so much deverence to William and Catherine as well as to Charles, Camilla, Philip and the queen.

If anything, both Kate and Meghan would work in tandem to assure that the media is kept on right side of the red line in the sand when it comes to their privacy. They're family and not about to become media circus clowns for our entertainment. Those days are long gone.

As far as deference, both ladies know how the royal family works and are comfortable enough in their own skins to be a part of a team rather than a solo act.

Wonder which necklace the Queen of the Belgians is wearing. Pity that there is no good pic of her.

But happy birthday Charles!

There is no difference with -for an example- the 50th birthday of King Willem-Alexander, last year. Also that event was completely shielded. So it is not exclusively the British royal family being frugal with pictures.

Nice to see Lady Gabriella and her fiance there but a pity that Albert of Monaco attended another royal gathering alone. Princess Charlene just won't mix with other royals anymore. Strange.

I was going to post exactly the same question when I saw your message. It doesn't look like the Wolfers necklace, but it is hard to see.
