Members of the Royal Family Send Birthday Wishes to Camilla Parker Bowles on Instagram

Today, Camilla Parker Bowles is celebrating her 75th birthday, and she is feeling the love from other members of the royal family.

The Duchess of Cornwall's birthday was commemorated on the official royal family Instagram account, where Queen Elizabeth sent her well-wishes with a new post, which read, “Wishing The Duchess of Cornwall a very Happy 75th Birthday!” (Along with a cake emoji, of course.)

In the photo, the duchess sits on the steps of a shepherds hut that sits in her backyard at her home in Wiltshire, with her dog, Beth, sitting on her lap. The pic was snapped by royal photographer Chris Jackson, and it's part of a new series of portraits that were just released in honor of Parker Bowles's birthday.

Royal followers showed their love in the comments, like one user who said, “Happy Birthday Your Royal Highness!” Another wrote, “Fabulous. Happy Birthday Camilla.”

However, this wasn't the only special shoutout the duchess got on her 75th. On Kate Middleton and Prince William's shared account, the couple wrote their own message to Parker Bowles on their Story, which said, “Wishing a very happy 75th birthday to The Duchess of Cornwall today!”

Better yet, the message accompanied one of the photos that the Duchess of Cambridge took when she photographer Parker Bowles for Country Life magazine earlier this month.

We would bet that Prince Charles has planned something special for his darling wife as well. Here's to hoping we see how the Duchess of Cornwall spends the big day.

Happy birthday, Camilla! We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for any more bday wishes.
