Queen Elizabeth celebrates 73rd wedding anniversary

It is celebration galore for the Queen of England; Queen Elizabeth II, and her husband; Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, as they celebrate their 73rd wedding anniversary.

 

The celebrated the occasion by sharing a photograph of themselves reading a card made by their great-grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, The Guardian reports.

The couple are pictured on a sofa in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle, where they are spending lockdown.

The Queen wore chrysanthemum brooch, made from sapphires and diamonds set in platinum.

She wore the same brooch in photographs taken on their honeymoon at Broadlands in Hampshire, and again in pictures taken to mark their diamond wedding in 2007.

The royal couple has spent much time apart since Philip, now 99, retired from public engagements in 2017, with him living largely on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk while she remained at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. But during the pandemic lockdown, the couple have been bubbled together at Windsor Castle.

The colourful card, with a pop-out figure of 73, was one of several anniversary cards and letters sent by well-wishers to the couple, with a small pile shown on a nearby table.

The Queen, 94, was a 21-year-old princess when she married Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten on 20 November 1947.
