Love is All You Need

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip

My friend Cheryl, she has a great blog by the way,  just recently brought this photo of the Queen and Prince Philip to my attention. I had to share it as well. The above photo in black and white was taken on their honeymoon in 1947! The second photo is from their diamond wedding anniversary in 2007 (60 years!). So lovely!

According to the UK paper the Daily Mail, “The Queen met her husband as a 13-year-old in 1939. Throughout her teens, she stayed devoted to Philip, who proposed in 1946 at Balmoral. The engagement was controversial and both of Elizabeth’s parents were initially opposed. It was not until April 1947 that George VI (played by Colin Firth in ‘The King’s Speech’), gave them permission to marry.”

Here is a photo from their wedding day in 1947:

Hopefully the most recent royal wedding couple, William and Kate, will have the same happy and long lasting marriage!
cheers! andrea ♥
