The special Aussie guest invited to Prince Charles’ official 70th birthday party

The special Aussie guest invited to Prince Charles’ official 70th birthday party

On November 14, the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, will celebrate his 70th birthday with family and friends from across the globe.

An exclusive party will be held by Queen Elizabeth in the Prince of Wales’ honour inside the State Rooms of Buckingham Palace on his birthday.

And it has been revealed that one famous Aussie has managed to receive an invite to the lavish event.

Princess Mary and her Danish husband Prince Frederik are two of the notable guests that will be making an appearance on the night.

The Danish royal family have confirmed the couple’s attendance for the party, which comes as no surprise, as Mary and Frederik bonded well with Charles and Camilla during their Diamond Jubilee tour of Scandinavia in 2012.

The Danish royals have also formed a strong relationship with Charles’ eldest son and daughter-in-law, Prince William and Duchess Kate.

Other royals across Europe are expected to attend the event, which means there will many ladies donning tiaras and sashes at the celebration.

The guest of honour will be joined by his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and his two sons and their wives.

It has not yet been confirmed if Prince Philip, 96, will be in attendance due to his health.

Details for the party have not been disclosed but reportedly, the Queen will make a speech in tribute to her eldest son.

A new BBC documentary Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70 will also air to coincide with the milestone birthday.

The documentary will feature interviews with Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla, Prince William and Prince Harry.

Filmmaker John Bridcut was given exclusive access to the Prince over one year, both at work and home.

Discussing the intimate look into the life of Charles, director of BBC Content, Charlotte Moore, said: “It's a real privilege to be given access to the Prince of Wales and those closest to him to mark his 70th birthday. This intimate documentary will offer a unique insight into his life and work and those who know him best."
