The future Queen Consort was photographed alongside her beloved Jack Russell Terrier, Beth, who sat on her lap and gazed into the camera. 

Camilla, who is patron of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, adopted both her Jack Russells Beth and Bluebell from the charity, which has rehomed more than three million animals since being founded in 1860.

They've even accompanied the Duchess on a few royal outings over the years, so it comes as no surprise Beth was pictured alongside Camilla on her milestone birthday.
