Camilla Parker Bowles Just Hung Out with a Bunch of Mini Donkeys for Her Birthday & You Won't Believe Their Names

Camilla Parker Bowles knows how to party. Case in point: For the Duchess of Cornwall's 72nd birthday today, Camilla got to meet and pet a group of miniature donkeys—and, no, it wasn't because she wanted to play "pin the tail." She was paying a visit to the Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, England.

The most surprising part, though: The donkeys she met are named William and Harry. (We can't even go there with the puns...)

The Donkey Sanctuary was also celebrating a special milestone: The charity's 50th anniversary happens to coincide with Camilla's birthday. The duchess also met a pair of regular-size donkeys who seem to have taken a liking to the birthday queen.

The best part about the whole day, though, might've been the duchess's outfit. Wearing a camel-colored cropped jacket over a breezy pleated white skirt and carrying a straw bag with bamboo top handles, Camilla looked summer-vacay ready.

Summer vacay...spending your birthday petting donkeys...same difference, right?
