AceShowbiz - Celebrating Prince Charles' turning 70 years old on Wednesday, November 14, royal fans are treated to a couple of new royal family pictures. The heartwarming pictures see the Prince of Wales posing beside his beloved wife, sons and grandchildren.
Both pictures were taken at the Clarence House garden by Chris Jackson. Charles posed alongside his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall as well as Prince George and Princess Charlotte on a wooden bench. Meanwhile, Princess Harry and wife Meghan Markle stood behind them, and so are Prince William and Kate Middleton, who is cradling Prince Louis.

While the first picture is a rather formal photo with them sweetly smiling to the camera, the second shot sees them getting a little bit relaxed. George is sent into fits of laughter by something behind the camera and so does Meghan. Staring at the same direction, Camilla points at something to Charlotte who responses it with a sweet smile. Kate also makes her baby son look at the same direction.
On the other hand, William, Harry and Charles smile widely at the camera.
Jackson also shared the pictures on his Instagram account and wrote, "I've travelled all over the world photographing the Prince of Wales for the last 15 years from Durbars in Negiria to the Galapagos Islands, Pakistan, Japan and many more as well as covering numerous domestic Royal Engagements so 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 continued, "It was particularly special to capture such an informal and relaxed family portrait over a fun afternoon in the gardens of Clarence House."
A source tells PEOPLE that William and Kate were instrumental in making sure the date and time for the photo shoot worked for everyone. "They pulled out all the stops to make sure everyone was around to be able to do it," the source explains.
