The photographer shared about the shoot saying, “It was lovely chaos with the grandchildren - he is a very hands-on grandfather.” His wife, Camilla also shared some insight into Charles’ relationship with his grandchildren.

She stated:

“People don’t see him as being someone who will roll around the floor with the children, but he does. He will literally get down on his hands and knees. He really loves them. He is sweet with his own grandchildren and little Louis tugs at his hair and his nose. He doesn’t get cross or angry, he loves it.”

It’s believed that Charles’ parents, the Queen and Prince Philip weren’t included in the family photos because of “etiquette.” Duncan Larcombe a former Royal correspondent explained:

"The main reason is that it's Prince Charles' birthday portrait, so he should be the most senior member of the royal family to appear in it. There's also more evidence than ever that there's a conscious effort to start pushing Charles to the front as he takes on a more prominent role.”
