Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip is a love story that transcends time.
On November 20th, 1947, Princess Elizabeth, the future Queen, married the very dreamy Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten.
On Friday, April 9, 2021, the Palace announced that Prince Philip had died - but their love story is one that will continue to be told.
The sweet duo announced they were set to get married all the way back on July 10, 1947.
Sharing with the world a snap of the then 21-year-old Princess beaming as she showed off the elegant engagement ring presented to her by future husband, who was 26 at the time.
It's fair to say the couple were destined for greatness following their glorious royal wedding at Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947.
Showing the world she'd be a humble queen, the Princess required ration coupons to buy the material of her wedding dress.
Indeed, their withstanding relationship is based on their mutual love and respect but also a shared sense of humour – after all, Prince Philip is notoriously funny!.
In fact the 99-year-old Duke of Edinburgh "traipses around" and jokes that he is the "fella who belongs to Mrs Queen", rather than being "professionally qualified in something".
On the other hand, the 94-year-old is very comfortable around her husband, with her former private secretary, Lord Charteris once admitting, "It is not unknown for the Queen to tell the Duke to shut up."
Joking aside, it is clear that it is the Prince's utter devotion to his wife that has been a backbone to their incredible partnership.
"My job first, second and last is never to let the Queen down," he has sweetly said.
Prince Philip, 97, may have retried from official royal duty, but 71 years on - his feet are firmly planted by his Queen's side.
