The Queen will offer a lavish party for Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace to celebrate his 70th birthday.
Invitations to hundreds of relatives and friends have gone secretly for the private party, which will take place in the State Rooms on Wednesday November 14, the prince's birthday.

Palace experts say the Queen will say some nice but funny words about her son and heir that day, even a future 70 year old king would appreciate a pat on the back of her mother.
To commemorate the occasion, the Prince of Wales and his team have also cooperated with a new and major BBC television documentary – a crew has been following the heir to the throne for months – and two magazine profiles.
ITV is broadcasting a unique night of comedy and magic at the London Palladium, entitled We Are Most Amused And Amazed, and the proceeds will go to the charitable organization of Prince & # 39; s Trust. And there are plans underway to launch a birthday portrait and organize engagements that involve members of the public and their charities on the day.
The details of Charles's birthday party, organized by the Queen's private office and paid for with their own funds, are a well-kept secret.
But the guests will include, of course, the families of Charles and Camilla, as well as European royalty. It is anticipated that Prince Philip will also make a rare public appearance, although it is unlikely that he will stay far beyond the speeches.

It is understood that Charles' right-hand man, his controversial former assistant cameraman Michael Fawcett, is also taking a role in overseeing the proceedings, even though it is an event at Buckingham Palace.
It comes after a tumultuous year in the royal house, with a number of officials of the Queen departing in what one person from the interior described as a "coup". by Charles staff. But in recent months the disputes have subsided, and Charles, according to experts, is as happy as ever.
In particular, Charles's bond with his youngest son, Prince Harry, is warmer than it has been for many years, helped by the relationship he has established with his daughter-in-law Meghan.
It is also expected that Prince William, who has not always had the easiest relationship with his father, even gives him a rare public tribute in the run up to his big day, although nothing has been confirmed yet.
