After 7 Decades Married, Royal Family Makes Announcement That Will Forever Go Down In History
The highly revered Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip recently celebrated an important milestone together. While the fans around the globe rejoiced and celebrated with these two who didn't make a fizz about the thing, they became the first royal couple to celebrate this milestone together!
#3 70 Years of marriage
The royal couple celebrated 70 years of their blissful married life in November. Meeting as teenagers when Elizabeth was 13 and Philip was 18, they fall in love with each other gradually over the social meetings. While they spent most of their early years in the same social circles, their romance wasn't sparked until she visited the Royal Naval College with her parents and met back up with Philip who gave the princess and her family a tour of the college.
After Philip returned from serving in the Royal Army during World War II, he and then-Princess Elizabeth announced their engagement. The young couple was wed a mere four months after that.
#2 The Ageless Love
Attended by about 2000 guests, the wedding took place at Westminister Abbey. While the then Princess Elizabeth looked gorgeous as ever, Prince Philip was no less charming. Her wedding ring was made from a nugget of Welsh gold.
Now, Queen Elizabeth is 91 years of age and Prince Philip is 96 when they celebrate this milestone together. To honour their anniversary, they had a beautiful new portrait taken at Windsor Castle in the White Drawing Room there.
#1 The Gorgeous Couple
Needless to say, the couple is looking ravishingly beautiful in this portrait. Royal Mail released a special stamp collection featuring six stamps to commemorate this milestone. The black and white stamps capture several historic moments in the royal couple's lives.
The six stamps specifically depict the couple at their engagement announcement, immediately following their wedding and during their honeymoon. It goes without saying that they are endearing in every way possible!
