Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip mark 70th wedding anniversary
By Patricia Uyeh,
As part of activities to mark the 70th wedding anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, the royal palace released new portraits of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip this week, showing the long-lasting couple ahead of their landmark milestone.
Taken by British portrait photographer Matt Holyoak, the images show the couple in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.
According to People, the 91-year-old Queen wore a yellow gold brooch that 96-year-old Philip gave her decades ago in 1966.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh wed exactly 70 years ago on Nov. 20, 1947, when she was 21 and he was 26. The ceremony took place at Westminster Abbey — the coveted spot for marriages in the Royal Family. The Queen’s parents King George VI and Queen Elizabeth wed there in April 1932, and Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, had their ceremony there in 2011.
