THE QUEEN & PRINCE PHILIP CELEBRATE DIAMOND ANNIVERSARY


Prince Charles is planning to host a special dinner party to celebrate the diamond wedding anniversary of his parents, The Queen and Prince Philip. The party will be held at the Prince’s home Clarence House, where close members of the Royal family including Prince Charles, The Duchess of Cornwall and Princes William and Harry, will gather to toast the royal couple’s special 60 year anniversary.

Many people forget that as well as being a head of state and one of the hardest working members of the royal family, the Queen is also a wife, mother and grandmother. It’s hard to believe that 60 years have passed since The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh were married at Westminster Abbey on 20th November 1947. Over 2,000 people including many heads of state are expected to attend a special service of thanksgiving for the royal couple which is due to be held there today.

P.S. I’m posting a special picture showing the Queen and Prince Philip on their wedding day in 1947. I thought many readers would like to see this. This picture is courtesy of

    Yes not many marriages last that long these days Sheila. We love our Queen dearly.

    My parents are celebrating their 48th wedding anniversary on December 1st. Not as long as the Queen's and Prince Philips' but quite a few years, too!

    Naomi said...

    Yes that is quite a few years Janey. Unfortunately not many marriages last that long these days. Please wish your parents a Happy Anniversary from me.
