Queen Elizabeth II sent Sugar, her dog, to be mated with another Rozavel stud, this one with the racy name of Rebellion. Daphne Slark remembers the day when she and Thelma Gray took the resulting litter to Windsor, and the Queen—who with Charles and Anne had planned to pick just one—could not make up her mind. “Don’t tell your father,” the Queen instructed her children. “Don’t tell your father we’ve got two puppies. Two new puppies!”

“It is a privilege for any mother to be able to propose a toast to her son on his 70th birthday.

It means that you have lived long enough to see your child grow up. It is rather like —to use an analogy I am certain will find favour — planting a tree and being able to watch it grow.

My mother saw me turn 70, of course. And she was heard to observe that 70 is exactly the age when the number of candles on your cake finally exceeds the amount of breath you have to blow them out.

Over his 70 years, Philip and I have seen Charles become a champion of conservation and the arts, a great charitable leader — a dedicated and respected heir to the throne to stand comparison with any in history — and a wonderful father.

Most of all, sustained by his wife Camilla, he is his own man, passionate and creative.

So this toast is to wish a happy birthday to my son, in every respect a duchy original.

To you Charles. To the Prince of Wales.”

The toast made by Queen Elizabeth to Prince Charles during his 70th birthday party on November 14, 2018.
