Clarence House shared a sweet image of the Duchess of Cornwall with one of her pet dogs to mark a special day on Thursday.

The snap shows Camilla walking her Jack Russell-terrier, Beth, with stunning countryside scenery behind them, suggesting it was taken during a break at the Queen's Scottish estate, Balmoral.

The photo was first shared by Prince Charles and Camilla's household last year ahead of the Duchess' appearance on the Emma Barnett Show.

The Duchess adopted her beloved dogs Beth and Bluebell from Battersea, and they've accompanied her on a few royal outings over the years.

Beth helped Camilla to officially open a new facility at the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home Old Windsor centre in December, using a sausage to unveil the plaque.

And in April 2020, Beth and Bluebell stole the show in a new portrait of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall as they marked their 15th wedding anniversary.

The royal pooches have also accompanied Charles and Camilla at the Dumfries House Dog Show in Cumnock, Scotland, in 2015 and 2017.

The royals are a family of dog owners, with the Queen owning several corgis and dorgis over the years. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's beloved English Cocker Spaniel, Lupo, passed away last year but before that, they welcomed a new puppy to their family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also own a beagle named Guy and adopted another dog, Pula, before their move to the US.
