A photo was released today to mark tomorrow’s 73rd wedding anniversary of HM and the Duke of Edinburgh. In the image, you see HM and Prince Philip looking at an anniversary card made by Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.
A closer look at the card, complete with the ’73’ that stands out from the card’s background.
The photograph was taken Tuesday in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle. Below, a closeup view in a photo released by Kensington Palace Friday morning.
In the image released today, HM is wearing a brooch that she also wore on her honeymoon in 1947. The couple was staying at Broadlands, an estate in Hampshire owned at the time by Lord Mountbatten, Prince Philip’s uncle.
You see the brooch in this photo, also taken at Broadlands. It recreated the 1947 honeymoon scene in honor of the couple’s 60th anniversary.
The Court Jeweller notes, “From the start, Elizabeth chose the brooch for important events.” A closer look, including a detailed view from the most recent wearing of the brooch (r), an October 2019 reception for the Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.

Happy Anniversary to HM and HRH!
