On July 17, Duchess Camilla celebrates her 75th birthday. On the occasion of her day of honor she was now allowed at the 125th edition of the British glossy magazine “Country Life” work as a guest editor. For the cover, the future royal wife was even photographed by her step-daughter-in-law, Duchess Kate.

The Duchess of Cornwall is pictured in the garden of her country home, Ray Mill House, in Wiltshire. She bought the house in the 1990s after her divorce from Andrew Parker-Bowles, just 17 miles from Prince Charles’ Highgrove House. Camilla wears a light blue, floral summer dress with a shirt collar and a sky blue cardigan in the photo. In her hand she holds a wooden basket with cut flowers and garden tools and smiles friendly at the camera. Camilla wished Kate would photograph her for the cover. According to Country Life, the photo reflects the “true joy that country life brings to the Duchess of Cornwall.”

Behind the scenes shows Kate as a photographer

The “Clarence House” Twitter account also gives a look behind the scenes of the photo shoot: Duchess Kate can be seen in jeans, white sneakers and a vintage red jacket as she kneels to photograph Camilla.

Duchess Kate has proven her photography skills several times, for example she published some private snapshots of her children and family. In 2020 she also photographed Holocaust survivors with their grandchildren on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.

Prince Charles’ marriage to Lady Diana († 36) was not a good one. She broke up just a few years after the wedding. This is said to have been due to the fact that Charles is said to have often cheated on Camilla Parker Bowles. How the heir to the throne reacted in the nineties when he was asked about such rumors is now shown in a documentary. © ProSiebenSat.1
