HRH The Queen

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Mountbatten

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
