Last year, Camilla celebrated her birthday with her family at Raymill, her private Wiltshire home.

The duchess had a busy week ahead of her 74th birthday, attending engagements in Yorkshire and London.

On Wednesday, Prince Charles and Camilla attended ‘A Starry Night In The Nilgiri Hills’ hosted by the Elephant Family at Lancaster House in London.

Speaking at the event, Camilla said: “In 2002, my beloved brother, Mark, helped create the charity Elephant Family, to protect Asia’s magnificent wildlife. Over the past few weeks, Londoners have had the rare opportunity to see some of that wildlife (albeit in static form!) on the Mall, in Green Park, in St James’s Park and in Berkeley Square.

“These magnificent, life-sized elephants have roamed – with a little help - from the Nilgiri Hills of Southern India, to the Cotswolds, to the heart of the city to raise awareness of the vital importance of healthy co-existence between humans and animals.

"They are a timely reminder to us all to live well with Nature, wherever we may be.”

The couple also attended the Great Yorkshire Show, where they met horse riders, farmers, and their livestock.
