Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip Celebrate 70th Wedding Anniversary

Not many people can say they’ve spent 70 years with the same person. Then again, not everyone is the Queen of England.

In honour of Queen Elizabeth, 91, and Prince Philip’s, 96, platinum 70th wedding anniversary, new official portraits and commemorative stamps have been released by Buckingham Palace to celebrate the occasion.

Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark first met the then-Princess Elizabeth in 1939 when he was tasked with looking after her as he was visiting Dartmouth. They later married on November 20 1947, six years before Elizabeth would become Queen.

Sweetly, the two have always spoke fondly of one another, with the Queen describing Philip as “someone who doesn’t take easily to compliments but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years.”

While Buckingham Palace confirmed that there would be no public celebrations, the Royal Family are said to be celebrating with a quiet dinner.

So, take a look through Elizabeth and Philip’s love story throughout the years, and then head off and binge-watch The Crown.
