Prince Charles is celebrating his 70th birthday today.

The palace released photos of the Prince of Wales for his official birthday photos with his close family members. They posed for formal and intimate snaps in the gardens of Clarence House. However, according to Nicholas Bieber, a journalist for Daily Star, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were snubbed from the photoshoot.

The heir to the throne was joined by his wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, and his sons, Prince William and Prince  Harry, along with their wives Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, respectively. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children, 5-year-old Prince George, 3-year-old Princess Charlotte and 6-month-old Prince Louis, were present as well, and they looked adorable in every shot. Unfortunately, the monarch and Duke of Edinburgh were noticeably missing.

The publication noted that the photographs were taken on Sept. 5 when Markle was only just a few weeks into her pregnancy. In one snap, everyone smiled into the camera. In another shot, they were more animated.

Prince Louis and Middleton are looking in another direction. Prince George seems to be smiling at something that wasn't caught on camera. On the other hand, Camilla is pointing into something while conversing with Princess Charlotte.

It remains unknown why Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip were not included in the photos. The two senior royals are known to be in good shape. In fact, just a week ago, they were seen enjoying horse riding in the grounds of Windsor Castle separately. Her Majesty was riding her beloved black Felly pony, Carltonlima Emma. The pony sported a red poppy to mark Remembrance week.

On the other hand, Prince Philip went carriage riding with two black horses in the fields. He was joined by two stablewomen.

Prince Philip skipped Remembrance Day for the first time in 20 years. However, he was seen horse riding again a day after the event.

Prince Charles has more than one celebration for his 70th birthday. Back in May, he held a garden party at Buckingham Palace shortly after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding. It's where the pregnant duchess made her royal debut.

In October, Prince Charles continued the celebration by hosting a concert gala. However, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn't make it today. Today, Prince Charles is celebrating his actual birthday.
