“Wishing His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales a very Happy Birthday !,” the couple said on Twitter.
Meanwhile, the Royal Family’s official Twitter account posted a photo of baby Charles with the Queen.
The message read: “We wish the Prince of Wales a very happy birthday today! ”
The Prince of Wales celebrates his 72nd birthday as a turbulent year for the country draws to a close.
Charles has been busy supporting the Queen during Remembrance Week – as he does every year – and is expected to mark his personal milestone in private.
Last weekend, Remembrance Sunday, the prince laid a wreath at the cenotaph in honor of the country’s war dead on behalf of the queen.
In 2020, the heir to the throne saw the Duke and Duchess of Sussex step down from official royal duties and move to America, and experienced the coronavirus first-hand, contracting the virus in March.
Like the rest of the royal family, he adapted his commitments during the first nationwide lockdown, putting them online by hosting video calls and posting messages of support on social media.
The eldest child of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles Philip Arthur George was born at Buckingham Palace on November 14, 1948, weighing 7 lbs 6 oz.
He became the heir apparent upon the death of his grandfather King George VI, when his mother ascended to the throne on February 6, 1952 when he was three years old.
He was created Prince of Wales on July 26, 1958 at the age of nine.
Charles, who is the patron of over 400 organizations, has been the oldest heir to the throne for over 300 years.
Gun salutes would normally be fired to celebrate Charles’s birthday from Green Park, the Tower of London and other places across the country.
But a Defense Ministry spokeswoman said the Covid restrictions meant they would not take place this year.
She said: “We can confirm that after consultation with key stakeholders, ceremonial firing from all salvation stations continues to be temporarily suspended due to national Covid-19 restrictions.
“As such, the gun salute which is due to take place on Saturday 14 November for the birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales will no longer take place.
“Future events of this type will continue to be regularly reviewed in conjunction with current government guidance on Covid. “
