The Queen And Prince Philip Celebrates 70th Wedding Anniversary - The Most Successful Marriage In British Royal History

Queen and Prince Philip pose for 70th wedding anniversary
This portrait (right) was taken in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle earlier this month by British photographer Matt Holyoak, and show the Monarch with a smile playing on her lips. The Queen, 91, wears a cream day dress by Angela Kelly which she also wore at the service marking her diamond wedding anniversary at Westminster Abbey a decade ago. Behind her, the Duke wears a dashing light tweed jacket and sharply creased grey flannel trousers. He appears relaxed and healthy after his retirement from official duties in the autumn. Left, the couple in Buckingham Palace 70 years ago; inset, in 2007, the pair revisited Broadlands, in Hampshire, where they spent their wedding night 60 years earlier.

Dignified and affectionate: One of the official platinum wedding anniversary portraits of the Queen and Prince Philip

The Queen is said to be keen to mark her platinum wedding anniversary privately, welcoming her closest family and friends to a private dinner party in the State Apartments at Windsor Castle tomorrow evening.
It will be in sharp contrast to their wedding at Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947 – which was celebrated around the world
In 2007, the royal couple revisited Broadlands, in Hampshire, where 60 years earlier they spent their wedding night
