Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, who were married in 1947, celebrate their platinum wedding anniversary today, 20 November with new portraits.
In this handout image issued by Camera Press, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh pose for a photo in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle in early November, in celebration of their platinum wedding anniversary on November 20, 2017 in Windsor, England.
According to friends, they are as happy in each’s company today as they have been at any time in the past 70 years.
Indeed there is no better example of this marital consistency than a glimpse at the photos that marked their engagement in July 1947, now skilfully coloured by the Mail for the first time.
