On their golden wedding anniversary, she paid very personal tribute to Prince Philip in a speech at the Guildhall in London, in which she said: "He is someone who doesn't take easily to compliments, but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years".

Queen Elizabeth received a special card from her great grandchildren to celebrate 73 years of marriage with Prince Philip. Prince George , Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis made a colorful homemade card for their Gan-Gan and the Duke of Edinburgh in honor of their 73rd anniversary on Friday, Nov. 20.

The photo, taken by Getty Images' royal photographer Chris Jackson, shows the monarch, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, siting on a sofa in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle, where they are spending the UK's second lockdown, looking at ease as they read a card made by their great-grandchildren, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two. In fact, hundreds of people from across the United Kingdom joined forces in a bid to help pay for the dress, although it was considered illegitimate for the Queen to use them.

The official Kensington Palace Instagram account shared a closer look at the brightly colored handmade card.

Elizabeth, 94, and Philip, 99, married in London's Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947, just two years after the end of World War Two. Their enduring relationship has lasted the longest of any British sovereign. Their great grandchildren, meanwhile, are isolating at Anmer Hall in Norfolk with their parents.
