Queen Elizabeth And Prince Philip Celebrate 73rd Anniversary With Handmade Card From Their Great Grandchildren

It was 73 years ago that a then Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten got married at Westminster Abbey.

Now Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are celebrating their long-lasting marriage with a special picture.

In the sweet photograph, their great-grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis got creative and made an anniversary card for them which Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are looking at. All around them, they are surrounded by other cards and letters from well-wishers.

The Queen looks lovely in a pale blue wool crepe dress by her go-to designer Stewart Parvin. She is also wearing the sapphire and diamond Chrysanthemum brooch.

She has previously been photographed wearing it for their 60th anniversary, as well as on their honeymoon.

The photo was taken by royal photographer Chris Jackson in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle earlier this week.
