Charles and Camilla mark their first wedding anniversary

Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, marked their first wedding anniversary privately at the Scottish estate where they spent their honeymoon.

An official photograph of the couple was released today to mark the anniversary.

Charles and Camilla were captured in the leafy green garden of their London residence, Clarence House, by Mario Testino, a favourite photographer of the late Princess Diana.

The couple, who recently returned from a trip to Egypt, Saudi Arabia and India, are relaxing at the royal Balmoral estate in Scotland. They plan no public celebration.

The pair smiled and waved today at a small group of well-wishers gathered outside the nearby Crathie Parish Church, where they attended a morning service.

The wedding had originally been scheduled for April 8, 2005, but was postponed a day so Charles could attend the funeral of Pope John Paul II.

The couple married in a small civil ceremony in Windsor, ending years of gossip about a relationship that began when they were in their 20s, before Charles met and married Princess Diana.

After a service attended by their families, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams blessed the union in a religious service at Windsor Castle, reports the AP.
