Queen Elizabeth, Philip get anniversary card from great-grandkids

Queen and Prince Philip looking at a card from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's children

Despite living a year through the pandemic caused by the coronavirus, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, have reason to celebrate.

The Queen wore the brooch on her honeymoon in Broadlands in 1947.

In the new photo, 94-year-old Queen Elizabeth and 99-year-old Prince Philip are sitting on the couch and examining a postcard that their great-grandsons Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis signed and made with their own hands. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis - the Cambridge children - worked together to create a sweet anniversary wish for the British monarch.

On their golden wedding anniversary, she paid very personal tribute to Prince Philip in a speech at the Guildhall in London, in which she said: "He is someone who doesn't take easily to compliments, but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years".

In the photograph, a smiling Prince Philip holds the card in his hand. The card was first revealed in a photo shared by the Royal Family social media accounts on Thursday.

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh tied the knot on 20 November 1947, in a handsome ceremony held at Westminster Abbey, when the Queen was just 21 and Philip - then Prince of Greece and Denmark - was 26. The marriage turned out to be the longest in the history of the British monarchy, and has lasted over seven decades.

The Royal Family also released a picture from their honeymoon to mark their anniversary. The royal couple has been married for 73 years and continues to show signs of having formed an unbreakable bond. Their great grandchildren, meanwhile, are isolating at Anmer Hall in Norfolk with their parents.
