Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, attended the Big Jubilee Lunch at The Oval cricket ground in London on Sunday, the final day of celebrations marking Queen Elizabeth II's 70 years on the throne.
The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall have marked the 40th anniversary of the Falklands War at a commemorative event in Portsmouth. The 1982 war between Britain and Argentina is particularly poignant for Prince Charles, as his younger sibling Prince Andrew served with the Royal Navy during the conflict. Report by Burnsla.
