The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh celebrated their rd3rd wedding anniversary on Friday and marked the occasion by reading a card made by their grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
The couple is pictured on a sofa in the oak room at Windsor Castle, where they are spending the lockdown.
Perhaps in symbolic reference to their long marital union, the queen preferred to wear a chrysanthemum brooch made of sapphires and diamonds made of platinum. She wore the same brooch in her honeymoon photographs in Broadland, Hampshire, as well as in their 2007 diamond wedding.
On their golden wedding anniversary, he paid a very personal tribute to Prince Philip in a speech at the Guildhall in London, where he said: “He is one who is not easily admired, but he has simply become my strength and stay all these years. “
After the royal couple retired from public engagement in 1999, Philip, now 99, has spent most of his time at Norfolk’s Sunderingham Estate with Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace. But during the epidemic lockdown, the couple bubbled together at Windsor Castle.
Colorful3’s pop-out pictured color card was one of several anniversary cards and letters sent by well-wishers showing a small pile at a nearby table.
