For the 73rd wedding anniversary, Elizabeth and Philip received a note made by the children of Kate Middleton and William
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, over 70 years of marriage
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip celebrate their 73rd wedding anniversary. They married on November 20, 1947. To celebrate their record-breaking wedding, the Sovereign and Prince consort shared a tender photo showing them smiling as they look at a note made by their great-grandchildren, George, Charlotte and Louis.
Kate Middleton and William therefore managed to snatch a smile from the couple who have lived the last few months in isolation. They spent the first lockdown at Windsor Castle, where they returned after a short London break in which Elisabetta, 94, took part in some institutional events, including one with William and the other at the cenotaph for Remembrance Day.
Elizabeth and Philip then returned to Windsor and the photo was taken in the Castle to celebrate their 73 years of marriage. The Sovereign and the Prince are sitting on a sofa in the Oak Room and are leafing through the many greeting cards, but perhaps one is more appreciated than the others, that of the grandchildren, sons of William and Kate. George, Charlotte and Louis spent several hours drawing and coloring the very welcome gift to great-grandparents. The photo was shared on the social pages of members of the Royal Family.
The little Cambridge children are increasingly involved in the life of the Monarchy, despite their tender age and even the choice to have their card appear in an official photo was designed to give a sense of the unity of the Royal Family and continuity between generations. , after rumors spread that the Queen would like to abdicate and even there was talk of a renunciation of the throne of Charles in favor of William. Rumors denied by the official communication of the preparations for the Diamond Jubilee.
So, would George, Charlotte and Louis be Her Majesty's favorite great-grandchildren? To tell the truth, Elizabeth and Philip seem to suffer a lot from being able to meet Archie, the son of Harry and Meghan Markle, who now lives thousands of miles away and there will be little chance that he will soon return to London.
However, the Sussexes seem to be in contact with Queen Elizabeth and call her often. On these occasions they show Archie in video, so he has the opportunity to follow his growth, even if at a distance.
Philip and Elizabeth met for the first time in 1934. They were officially engaged on 9 July 1947 to get married on 20 November of the same year in Westminster Abbey. The couple had 4 children: Carlo, Anna, Andrea and Edoardo. Three years ago they celebrated their platinum wedding with a party at Windsor Castle where, in addition to the family, about a hundred guests were invited.
