70 years, 70 pictures: The Queen & Prince Philip’s marriage- Part Two

To hold a position as Queen Elizabeth has done for so many years would not be possible without the unwavering support of Prince Philip.

In honour of such a milestone, we will be looking back, year-by-year, at one of the greatest love stories of our time. Part One can be viewed here.
