Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall have shared a lovely new picture, as they celebrate a very exciting milestone.

  • The royal couple are celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary, as they continue to self isolate together at Birkhall.
  • The special day comes after Prince Charles recovered from COVID-19.
  • This follows royal news that Duchess Camilla joined the NHS volunteers.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are celebrating a very special milestone this week.

The pair have been married 15 years today, and shared a lovely new picture to mark the occasion, which was taken at Birkhall, where they are currently staying.

But it wasn’t just the two of them – the pair revealed they have two very sweet four-legged friends keeping them company during this period of self-isolation, Bluebell and Beth.

Alongside the picture, they wrote, ‘Ahead of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall's 15th wedding anniversary tomorrow, we are sharing this photo of Their Royal Highnesses with The Duchess's dogs Bluebell and Beth.’

‘The photo was taken earlier today at Birkhall.’

Royal fans were quick to gush about the couple’s special milestone, with one saying, ‘So good to see Their Royal Highnesses outside, smiling and happy. Blessings on you both! 🤗’.

Another wrote, ‘So nice to see HRH Prince Charles looking so well again. A lovely photo of you both. Happy Anniversary to Prince of Wales & Duchess of Cornwall. Best wishes from Guernsey 😊’.

The special milestone comes after Prince Charles recovered from COVID-19, and had to self-isolate away from his wife.

The pair reunited earlier this week, when the Duchess came out of precautionary self-isolation.

After his recovery, Prince Charles did a speech from his personal office where he addressed the effect that the devastating virus has had on the ‘older members of the community’.

He said, “Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus, luckily with relatively mild symptoms, I now find myself on the other side of the illness, but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation.

“As we are all learning, this is a strange, frustrating and often distressing experience, when the presence of family and friends is no longer possible and the normal structures of life are suddenly removed.

“At such an unprecedented and anxious time in all our lives, my wife and I are thinking particularly of all those who have lost their lived ones in such very difficult and abnormal circumstances and of those having to endure sickness, isolation and loneliness.

“As Patron of Age UK, and my wife the Patron of Silver Line, our hearts go to all those older people throughout this country who are now experiencing great difficulty.”
