She wore the same brooch in photographs taken on their honeymoon at Broadlands in Hampshire, and again in pictures taken to mark their diamond wedding in 2007. Though the exact message the Cambridge children wrote to their great-grandparents remains a bit of a mystery, it's certain that George, Charlotte, and Louis put a lot of effort into the design, which features cutout numbers and shapes.

LONDON (AP) - Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip will celebrate their 73rd wedding anniversary Friday, and for the occasion the royal couple have released a photograph of themselves opening a card from three of their great-grandchildren.


In the new photo, 94-year-old Queen Elizabeth and 99-year-old Prince Philip are sitting on the couch and examining a postcard that their great-grandsons Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis signed and made with their own hands. Both Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip celebrated their birthdays without relatives.

A closer look at the card was shared by the Kensington Palace Instagram account, which is the official Instagram account of Prince William and wife Kate. Their enduring relationship has lasted the longest of any British sovereign. The royal couple turns 73 years of marriage and continues to show that they have formed an unwavering bond.


The Queen is seen in a powder blue dress by Stewart Parvin accessorised with a pearl necklace and a brooch, while Prince Philip opted for a blue suit and a pair of grey pants, paired with a white shirt and striped blue tie. With England under a national lockdown to control the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple is self-isolating at Windsor Castle.
