The picture was taken by top photographer Oliver Dann in the run-up to the couple's visit to the US last month, but was released by Clarence House on Thursday in celebration of their 10th wedding anniversary.
Charles and Camilla were married in a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall on April 9, 2005, followed by a service of blessing at St. George's Chapel. Husband and wife will celebrate their special anniversary privately at Birkhall – where they also spent their honeymoon, and their first wedding anniversary.

A decade since becoming the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla has become an integral member of the British royal family. She has won over the public with her charm, wit and warmth. It is clear that both she and Charles are utterly devoted to each other; they visibly light up when they are together, and are often seen smiling and laughing on public engagements.
"Traveling all over the world with the Prince, she has had a miraculous effect on him," royal biographer Penny Juror told the Telegraph. "He is happier, more relaxed and more confident than ever before."
Importantly Camilla also maintains a great relationship with Charles' sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, along with Kate Middleton. After their wedding, Harry spoke of his gratitude that Camilla has "made our father very happy" – a sentiment that still stands today.
