This week, a number of celebrities and royals are celebrating their birthdays! To mark the special occasions, we are taking a closer look at what is going on in the lives of these five famous faces, and how they may be spending their day...

17 July: Duchess of Cornwall turns 71

Happy Birthday to the Duchess of Cornwall, who turns 71 on Tuesday! The week leading up to her special day has been a busy one for Camilla. The Duchess attended the christening of little Prince Louis, as well as observing the RAF centenary flyover from the balcony of Buckingham Palace. She also enjoyed a day out at Wimbledon with her sister Annabel to watch the men's quarter finals last week, and looked elegant in a pale pink and white polka dot dress. Last year, Camilla held a garden party in the grounds of Clarence House to celebrate her milestone 70th birthday, and this year it will be the turn of her husband, Prince Charles, to mark his 70th. However Camilla chooses to celebrate her 71st birthday, we hope she has a great time!

18 July: Priyanka Chopra turns 36

Wednesday is a special day for actress Priyanka Chopra – it's her birthday! She has been delighting fans with her blossoming relationship with singer Nick Jonas, and rumour has it that she will be spending her special day with him. A source close to the couple said that they are planning to have a small gathering with friends in New York before Priyanka returns to Mumbai to begin filming her latest movie – Bharat. Proving their romance is as strong ever, Priyanka and Nick recently enjoyed a trip to her native India with her other half. The Quantico star opened up about the trip, during which Nick met her mother and attended a friend's wedding, saying: "We're getting to know each other and I think it was a great experience for him. It was really beautiful. He had a great time."

19 July: Benedict Cumberbatch turns 42

Happy Birthday to British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, who this week turns 42. He has a lot to celebrate at the moment, as last week he received his sixth Emmy nomination, for his lead role in the dark comedy Patrick Melrose. "I was in a car going home and my phone just blew. I thought 'Whoa, what's going on here, is there a malfunction?'," said the Sherlock Holmes star of the moment he realised the news. What's more, Benedict will star in an upcoming Channel 4 drama about the EU referendum and will portray Dominic Cummings, a Vote Leave campaigner.

22 July: Prince George turns 5

Happy 5th Birthday to Prince George, who celebrates his special day on Sunday. It's hard to believe that it has been five years since the world watched the door of the Lindo Wing at St Mary's hospital, Paddington, eagerly anticipating the birth of the future King. Since then, Prince George has won the hearts of the nation during his adorable public appearances. Just last week, he joined his family at his little brother Prince Louis' christening, and looked captivated whilst watching the RAF flypast with his sister Princess Charlotte from a side window. The cheeky pair seemed to enjoy the display, with Charlotte playfully sticking her tongue out and George excitedly waving at the crowds.

22 July: Selena Gomez turns 26

Happy Birthday to Selena Gomez, who shares her big day with Prince George!  The former Disney star is very busy at the moment. During an appearance on US chatshow Good Morning America, Selena was asked if she had any plans for her 26th birthday. She replied, "I might be working on my birthday," before adding: "It is [a good thing]. I'm very lucky. I'm grateful." Earlier this month, the Hands to Myself singer stunned in a blue and white floral ensemble at the premiere of her latest film Hotel Transylvania 3, which was very similar to the outfit worn by the Duchess of Sussex to the wedding of Celia McCorquodale.
