Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were married on the 21st of November, 1947

The wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten took place on 20 November 1947 at Westminster Abbey in London, United Kingdom.

The Duke of Edinburgh passed away earlier in the year, succumbing to old age at the age of 99. This would have been his and Queen Elizabeth's 74th wedding anniversary.

Together for more than seven decades, the monarch and her husband were the longest-married royal couple in British history.

Followers of the Royal Family will be well aware that Queen Elizabeth has been forced to rest in recent months as her health has not been in the best of health

The Queen missed this year's Remembrance Sunday ceremony. She had been due to attend but had to pull out with a sore back. The service still went ahead as planned, though Queen Elizabeth's absence was certainly felt.

Prince Philip's death was a huge blow to the Royal Family and is the main driver in what has been a difficult year for Queen Elizabeth. The Duke of Edinburgh's funeral was a muted affair due to the pandemic, and Queen Elizabeth spent months mourning his death.

Following his death in April, the Queen said she and her family were in a "period of great sadness", but that she was comforted by the tributes paid to him. She said, "We have been deeply touched, and continue to be reminded that Philip had such an extraordinary impact on countless people throughout his life."
