(CNN)Britain’s Prince Charles has released a candid family photograph, as the heir to the throne celebrates his 70th birthday.

In a special edition of British magazine Country Life, which the Prince of Wales guest-edited to mark the occasion, he spoke of “the alarming realization that I have reached the biblical threshold of three score years and 10.”However, in the official portrait, taken in the gardens of Clarence House in London in September, Charles looks anything but alarmed. The future king seems relaxed as he holds his eldest grandson, Prince George, on his lap, surrounded by members of his immediate family.Prince Charles poses for an official portrait in November 2008.Prince Charles poses for an official portrait in November 2008.

The king in waiting promised not to meddle in controversial affairs once he takes on the role of the monarch.”You know, I’ve tried to make sure whatever I’ve done has been nonparty political, but I think it’s vital to remember there’s only room for one sovereign at a time, not two. So, you can’t be the same as the sovereign if you’re the Prince of Wales or the heir,” said Charles.Historic British royal portraits go on display in US for first timeHistoric British royal portraits go on display in US for first timeHistoric British royal portraits go on display in US for first timeAs heir to the throne, Charles has written to ministers — and even the prime minister — on subjects close to his heart. He has spoken out on issues such as the environment and modern architecture — he once called a proposed extension to the National Gallery in London a “monstrous carbuncle.” The proposals were later dropped.”So, clearly … I won’t be able to do the same things I’ve done you know as heir, so of course you operate within the … the constitutional parameters. But it’s a different function,” he said in the film, titled “Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70.” Africa tourPrince Charles and his wife Camilla, earlier this month undertook a nine-day tour of West Africa.
