Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip's love story is an inspiration to couples all over the world. The royal pair got married on November 20, 1947 at Westminster Abbey when they were still Princess Elizabeth and Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten.

Elizabeth and Philip's nuptials, which took place just two years after the end of the Second World War, garnered worldwide attention as King George VI walked the future queen down the aisle.

Over 65 years, the inseparable couple have fulfilled countless royal duties, welcomed four children, eight grandchildren, and four great grandchildren.

On the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary in 1997, the Queen boasted about the "remarkable 50 years" she shared with Prince Philip.

"He is someone who doesn't take easily to compliments but he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know," she said.
