HRH The Queen
I am a Royalist, and am happy that anyone knows that.  However even for those who aren't, it is marvellous to celebrate a Platinum Wedding Anniversay.  I do hope that they are able to enjoy wonderful memories .... and plan for the daays ahead!

These 70th anniversary portraits were taken by British photographer Matt Hollyoak at Windsor Castle.  Queen, 91, and Prince Philip, 96, pose against a platinum background to mark the very special anniversary
The sequence of three photographs sees the Queen wearing a cream Angela Kelly dress and the Scarab brooch in yellow gold, carved ruby and diamond given as a personal gift from the Duke to the Queen in 1966

70 years, "a lifetime", together - amazing.

And, great that they are both keeping well, mentally & physically.

God save our Queen and her beloved Prince Consort.

If I had my way I'd give them another 70 years together.

I loved these photos when they released them, I think they're really sweet. They look so good together.

Yes, although formal photos, they still manage to look relaxed.

Not a royalist myself, but they are beautiful photos and platinum is indeed a wonderful anniversary to reach.

8 years ago it was Mum's cousin's 70th anniversary and we couldn't buy a card as we were told they weren't made as so few couples make it that far!
