Smiling in the gentle sunlight, Prince Charles is seen on his 70th birthday photographed for the first time with his entire dynasty – two sons, three grandchildren, and another yet to be born.

Grandpa Wales, as he is known by his brood, holds his first-born grandson, Prince George, five, on his knee, as the young prince, dressed in knee-high socks, shorts and loafers, smiles before bursting into laughter at something out of shot.

William revealed how Charles, who is patron of the Red Squirrel Survival Trust, adores the creatures at Balmoral.

'He is completely infatuated by the red squirrels that live around the estate in Scotland – to the extent that he's given them names and is allowing them into the house!' he said.

According to one royal aide, the photoshoot turned into a 'really happy family day'. Another said: ‘It's clear the youngsters have a really lovely bond with their grandpa. He is very affectionate with them.’

Writing in Country Life, Charles referred to his 'alarming' 70th birthday and joked that he had 'all the scars that go with' his milestone age. He expressed concern over the UK' position as a food producer and suggested it could give itself the edge by becoming the world's most environmentally friendly one.
查尔斯王子在《Country Life》中提及了自己“惊喜的”70岁生日,开玩笑说他“身上所有的伤疤都随着岁月消失了”。还表达了对英国作为食物生产商的顾虑,说英国应该成为世界上最环保的国家,这样才有优势。

'As a … small island, I cannot see how our food production could ever compete within the world's commodity markets,’ he said.

'Perhaps, though, we could seek to establish the United Kingdom as the most environmentally friendly food producer with a unique “brand image”, as an island offering the highest standards of quality and natural goodness?’
