Prince Charles celebrated his 65th birthday abroad today and it was not without excitement…According to the Mirror, the heir to the throne got a little too close to a giant temple oil burner lit with 65 lamps in his honor. An aide quickly put the flame out as Prince Charles quipped, “How quickly did you put me out?”

Camilla also offered a somewhat candid interview to mark the Prince’s birthday where she described life with the royal as “exhausting”. Here is a snip it from The Telegraph article:

She [Camilla] also described the agonies she has gone through trying to find suitable presents for him, saying he is “hopeless” to buy for, and ends up writing detailed lists of what he wants “so you get it exactly right”.

 In her most revealing interview to date, the Duchess’s enduring love for her husband shines through, despite admitting that his many passions can make him frustrating to live with….

Is he someone who does not like to celebrate birthdays?

“No, actually, he does quite like celebrating,” she replied. “He quite likes birthdays. He said it was really nice in New Zealand last year when everyone gave him a bit of a party. He likes people giving him a cake, a bit of a sing song. Some of us go a different way, but he quite likes it.

“The thing is that he is not going to stop at this age. He never, ever stops working. He’s exhausting. No matter what the day, he is always working.

“I am hopping up and down and saying, ‘Darling do you think we could have a bit of, you know, peace and quiet, enjoy ourselves together’. But he always has to finish something.

“He is so in the zone. You are outside, but he is always there in the zone, working, working, working.”
