The royal family recently celebrated Prince Charles‘ 70th birthday. Clarence House released two new portraits of the prince and his family to commemorate the occasion.

Surrounded by his children and grandchildren, the Prince sits on a bench with his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. The two hold their grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Behind them are Prince WilliamDuchess Catherine, holding 6-month-old Prince Louis, as well as Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan.

Getty photographer Chris Jackson said he was delighted to take the shots for Clarence House.

“It was particularly special to capture such an informal and relaxed family portrait over a fun afternoon in the gardens of Clarence House,” he said of Charles and Camilla’s official London residence.


The photos show a role the public doesn’t often see of Charles, as a grandfather. But more recently, he’s tapped into it. In the new edition of Country Life Magazine, he urged people to not take advantage of nature and to “think ahead to what our grandchildren will want and need.”
