A new photograph of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh has been released on the eve of their 70th wedding anniversary, to celebrate the most successful marriage in British Royal history.

Presenter Katherine Jenkins will interview Prince Michael during a visit to the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to mark the couple's platinum anniversary on Monday.

At 1 p.m. on Monday the bells at Westminster Abbey, where the couple were Wednesday, will toll to mark the milestone.

On 20 November 1947, at 11.20pm Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip were married at Westminster Abbey.

They are framed by Thomas Gainsborough's 1781 portraits of George III and Queen Charlotte, who were married for 57 years, and the Queen holds her hands clasped in front of her, while Prince Philip stands upright with his hands behind his back.

Royal Mail has issued a set of sic commemorative stamps, featuring the couple's engagement and wedding. The monarch looks lovely in a cream day dress by Angela Kelly, which she also wore at the Diamond Wedding Anniversary Service of Thanksgiving.

Queen Elizabeth paid tribute to her husband on her golden wedding anniversary, celebrating 50 years together.
