The stunning shot, taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, shows Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh with his wife of 68 years at their beloved Windsor Castle just after Easter.

Alongside the image, the Queen has remarked: “He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years.”

Their’s is a love story that has been broadcast, photographed, and documented since their very first correspondence in 1934, but one that has remained private and protected.
