Queen and Prince Philip celebrate 70 years of marriage

November 22, 2017

The Queen and Prince Philip celebrate 70 years of marriage on 20 November.

The bells of Westminster Abbey in London, where they married in 1947, rang to mark the occasion.

The royal couple marked Monday’s platinum wedding anniversary with a private dinner with family and friends at Windsor Castle.

Royal Mail has issued a set of six commemorative stamps, featuring the couple’s engagement and wedding.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are the first royal couple to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary.
When they married, the then Princess Elizabeth was 21-years-old while her groom, Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, was 26.
