Like leaders around the world, the Queen always chooses her brooches wisely, with thought far beyond whether or not it matches a particular outfit.

Despite living a year crossed by the pandemic caused by the coronavirus, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, have a reason to celebrate. And in the photo, the couple can be seen admiring a special card, which was given to them by their great-grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis. Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis - the Cambridge children - worked together to create a sweet anniversary wish for the British monarch.

"This new image has been released to mark the 73rd wedding anniversary of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh tomorrow", the royal family captioned the picture on Instagram.

Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh tied the knot on 20 November 1947, in a handsome ceremony held at Westminster Abbey, when the Queen was just 21 and Philip - then Prince of Greece and Denmark - was 26.

Then, the Buckingham Palace account shared another image of the first days of marriage between the royal couple. It features a colourful "73" emblazoned at the front.

A photograph released on the 73rd wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip. The royal couple had spent their honeymoon at Broadlands in Hampshire.

In perhaps a symbolic reference to their long marital union, the Queen chose to wear a chrysanthemum brooch, made from sapphires and diamonds set in platinum.

The Queen and the duke, 99, who has retired from public duties, are spending the lockdown at Windsor Castle in England and anniversary celebrations are expected to be low key.
