The photos were taken by Getty photographer Chris Jackson who’s spent the last 15 years of his career taking snaps of the Prince of Wales at both national and overseas engagements.
Sharing the images, Jackson had this to say about the rare candid photo which were taken in the Queen’s own backyard at the gardens of Clarence House.
“I was delighted to have been asked to take these official portraits of The Prince surrounded by his family to celebrate the important milestone of his 70th Birthday,” he wrote.
“It was particularly special to capture such an informal and relaxed family portrait over a fun afternoon in the gardens of Clarence House.”
