This coming Monday the 20th November 2017 marks a 70-year milestone in the lives of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. Married in 1947 in a post war Britain, the nation was transfixed on the new Royal couple who would break traditions and marry for love. Princess Elizabeth and her beloved Philip wed with all the splendour and dazzle expected of a Royal celebration. Wearing the magnificent diamond fringe tiara borrowed from her mother, natural pearls assembled in a double strand necklace and natural pearl and diamond cluster earrings, the future Queen radiated as she was accompanied by her father King George VI down the aisle. After the ceremony the young bride and groom beamed with joy as they greeted the elated crowds gathered outside Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, beginning their lives together on the world stage.
Over the years the Royal couple’s family has extended to include children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Their marriage has endured deaths of loved ones, the ascension to the throne, scandals, and tireless national service to the people of the Commonwealth. Through calm and turbulent times, the Queen and her consort have established themselves as a beacon of constancy to Great Britain.
