Charles Prince's 70th birthday, which begins with a private party at the Buckingham Palace

With a packed timetable that he met with foreign leaders and community workers, he was today Prince Charles as he celebrated his 70th birthday.

But today the Queen will be hosting tonight the Buckingham Palace's luxurious entertainment for its milestone – since her son is not only the oldest heir to the throne in British history, but also the oldest.

She invited royalty from all over Europe and families and friends who gathered on a black tie to celebrate for a few days.

But before tonight's royal extravaganza Prince of Wales had a whole day's commitment.

The former President of Kosovo Atifete Jahjaga, who hosted the country in 2016, met in his British home Clarence House this morning.

After lunch, he met with Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canl, who showed his country and the attitude to the global diplomatic stage.

Later in the afternoon he attended a tea reception where 70 people, 70 years old, were nominated to work in local communities with the Duke of Cornwall.

The day is typical of a workaholic prince, who often puts on 14-hour days and falls asleep at the table, as Prince Harry told BBC documentary.

Prince Philip was not seen in public engagement since the wedding of Princess Eugenie in the past month – the lack of previous memorial services – but the 97-year-old man will try to celebrate his birthday celebration on tonight's party.

Charles has good relations with many European kings, including King Harald and Queen Sonja of Norway. They are most likely to attend, and Crown Princess Mette-Marit Haakon and his wife, Crown Princess Mette-Marit, have already received invitations.

King Philippe of Belgium and Queen Mathilde will also be there.

Danish Crown Prince Frederick and Princess Mary confirmed their presence at the Danish Royal Web site. The couple extinguished him with Prince William and Kate, while Frederick also attended Harry Invictus Games in Sydney last month.

The representation of the Netherlands will be the princess Beatrix, the former Holland queen who abdicated in 2013. It is not known whether her son is Winem-Alexander and Queen Maxim's wife who last month spent a state visit to the United Kingdom there.

The British kings are represented by William and Kate, Harry and Meghan, Prince Edward and wife Sophie, Princess Anne and the husband of Timothy Laurence, and the Duke of York and daughter Beatrice and Eugenie.

There will also be representatives of some of the 420 charities, of which Charles is a patron or president.
