For 50 years, Prince Charles has served as the Prince of Wales and today two gorgeous new portraits have been released by the Palace to celebrate the momentous occasion.
The 71-year-old was given the title of Prince of Wales by his mother Queen Elizabeth when he was just nine years old, in July 1958.
Later on, at the age of 20, he was formally invested with the title by the Queen, 11 years later on July 1, 1969.
To mark the occasion, Clarence House has released two official portraits, one of Charles and one with his wife Duchess Camilla, and they are absolutely gorgeous.
Renowned royal photographer Chris Jackson, who has photographed all members of the royal family numerous times, took the intimate photos and perfectly captured the essence of the couple.
"This portrait of The Prince of Wales has been released to mark the 50th anniversary of His Royal Highness's Investiture," Clarence House wrote on Instagram.
"The photo was taken at Llwynywermod, The Prince and The Duchess's home in Wales."
This second photo of Charles and Camilla was taken outside the front door of their house - and we couldn't love it more!
Royal fans couldn't get enough of the beautiful portraits, sharing their love and respect for Charles on Instagram.
"Good man. Totally respect HRH and I have had the enormous pleasure and privilege of working with some of the Prince's projects and organisations and meeting the Prince on a number of occasions. He has and does make a huge contribution to positive change for the future for many people, especially giving young people self respect, skills and boosting their self esteem," one fan wrote.
While another said: "What a great picture! Just perfect."
