Joining the royal pair, Prince Charles was also pictured at the ceremony, wearing a traditional tartan kilt and a navy blazer. The opening of the sixth session of the Scottish Parliament seeks to pay tribute to local heroes from across Scotland who have supported their communities throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Posting a photo on the royal family's official social media accounts, a snap of Duchess Camilla wearing a chic green jacket and patterned scarf was shared alongside the caption: 

"Wishing the Duchess of Cornwall a very happy birthday today!" followed by a cake emoji, adding: "#HAPPYBIRTHDAYHRH. Swipe up to find out more about HRH's life and work."

The monarch has also lent several precious jewels to Camilla, including the Queen Mother's Rock Crystal Brooch. Photographed in May, the Duchess of Cornwall was pictured wearing the sparkling accessory as she attended the State Opening of Parliament at the Palace of Westminster. 

Marking the Queen's first in-person engagement since the death of her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, on 9 April, Camilla's decision to wear the brooch was particularly poignant. 

A wonderful show of support for her mother-in-law, the Queen would no doubt have appreciated Camilla's tribute to her beloved mother.
