The royal family have commemorated Princess Diana's legacy in a post to celebrate Prince Charles' 70th birthday.

Clarence House shared a heartwarming montage of Prince Charles' life over the years on Instagram, which included an iconic image of the late Princess Diana with Charles and their then-young boys Prince William and Prince Harry.

The photo was taken on the deck of the Royal Yacht Britannia in Venice, during their royal tour of Italy in May 1985.

Clarence House captioned the montage: "Happy 70th birthday to HRH The Prince of Wales."

Fans on Instagram praised the inclusion of Diana in the clip, with one writing: "Lovely video.....and yes lovely to see Princess Diana in the montage too."

Other fans remarked on how much Prince Harry resembles his dad in the photo of a young Charles sporting a beard.

Prince Charles' milestone birthday has also been marked with a BBC documentary featuring the royal's tireless campaigning for a cleaner planet, and Clarence House released two previously unseen portraits of the royal family.

The family photo features his wife Camilla Parker-Bowles, sons Prince William and Prince Harry along with wives Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, as well as his grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The first image sees the royal family smiling serenely for the cameras, while the second portrait is more informal as the family are pictured laughing at something going on behind the camera.

Have a great one, Prince Charles!
