The Queen is reportedly planning a lavish birthday party to celebrate her son Prince Charles’ 70th birthday.

According to The Daily Mail, invitations have already been sent out for the private bash, which will be held in the State Rooms at Buckingham Palace, on November 14 – the prince’s actual birthday.

While details are being kept closely under wraps by the royal family, guests will include the families of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall – including Princes Harry and William and Duchesses Kate and Meghan.

Festivities to mark the milestone occasion began earlier this summer, when Charles threw a garden party at Buckingham Palace for his staff and to celebrate the work of his charities. 

It has also been announced that ITV will broadcast a special TV magic show in his honour.

Charles also attended the GQ Awards in London last week, to receive the Editor’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Services to Philanthropy. The prince – who in April 2011 became the longest-serving heir apparent in British history – also features on the front cover of the men’s monthly magazine October issue.
