Tomorrow on November 20, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip will celebrate their 70th anniversary. They released a sweet an official portrait to commemorate the monumental occasion.
The couple, at ages 91 and 96, respectfully, look as healthy and stylish as ever. Elizabeth and Philip are the first British royals ever to reach the seven decade milestone. And the Queen is the longest serving British monarch in the history of the crown, surpassing her great great grandmother Queen Victoria in 2015.
On November 20, 1947, the then Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten married in front of 2,000 guests at Westminster Abbey. Only six years later, she was coronated as Queen, and the two became the most famous couple in the world. They’ve held that unofficial title ever sense. As the Queen herself puts it, Philip has always been her
“strength and stay.”
God save this Queen.
