The Prince of Wales’ and Camilla’s @ClarenceHouse account acknowledged the posts, saying: “Thank you for all your kind messages and well wishes on The Duchess of Cornwall’s 75th birthday today!”
It comes after an official picture of the future Queen Consort was released on Saturday to mark her birthday.
It shows Camilla sitting at a garden table with flowers and plants in the background and a tea cup and saucer in front of her, along with a bowl of peaches.
To mark Her Royal Highness’s 75th birthday tomorrow, a new picture has been released.

The picture was taken last month in the gardens of Raymill, Camilla’s retreat in Lacock, Wiltshire, where the photographed peaches were grown.
She bought the six-bedroom property, 17 miles from Charles’s Highgrove home, after her divorce from Andrew Parker Bowles in the mid-1990s.
The duchess is wearing a blue floral dress from Sophie Dundas in the photograph taken by Getty Images.
Clarence House said her birthday would be celebrated on Sunday with a small family dinner.
It is likely that Charles will host the evening get-together and guests are likely to dine at Highgrove.
Camilla’s daughter, Laura Lopes, and son, Tom Parker Bowles, are expected, along with her younger sister, Annabel Elliot.
