Britain's Prince Charles is turning 70 with a family birthday party - and a firm commitment to his environmentalist views.

Charles's office also released 70 facts about the prince to mark the occasion, which included the detail that he has a frog named after him - the Prince Charles Magnificent Tree Frog - and that at tree-planting ceremonies, he gives a branch a friendly shake to wish them well.

The Queen's touching toast was shared across official royal Instagram accounts and Twitter alongside a collection of photos of Charles and his mum throughout the years.

Clarence House just posted the sweetest snaps of the royal family in honor of Prince Charles' 70th birthday on Wednesday. For the big day, Prince Charles will attend a tea party championing 70 inspirational people who also turned 70 this year. It was a heartwarming picture to see Prince Charles surrounded by his family, which included wife Camila Parker, daughters-in-law Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle and his three grandchildren - Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

ITV hosted the We Are Most Amazed and Amused concert earlier in November to celebrate Charles' milestone birthday at London Palladium with a fleet of a-list stars on the guestlist. "If I sit there quietly, they will do so around me".

"Yet even as we grow older, the countryside that is such a special part of our lives somehow manages to adapt to the march of time, changing with the generations as much as with the seasons", the Prince wrote, reflecting on his birthday. Moreover, the queen reportedly had a private event planned for her son and his friends that evening at the palace.

It was gathered that the prince has insisted that his birthday will be a normal working day for his whole family. The reason for that is because his 70th is considered a major milestone for a future monarch.

Prince Charles' wife, Duchess of Cornwall, was spotted sitting beside her husband.

He added, "His enthusiasm and energy are truly infectious; it has certainly inspired William and I to get involved in issues we care passionately about and to do whatever we can to make a difference".
