The royal couple has an association of successful 65 years. A journey started back in 1939 when she was a princess and he a member of British Royal Navy. The future queen met the Greek and Danish royal family member while attending his cousin Princess Marina of Greece’s wedding.

They quickly became pen pals and later married at Westminster Abbey in 1947. Now 91, Prince Phillip had proposed the royal lady with a platinum ring holding heirloom diamonds from his mother’s tiara.
