Buckingham Palace has released a new photograph to mark the 73rd wedding anniversary of The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

The Queen and Prince Phillip will celebrate their special day on Friday at Windsor Castle.

In the photograph, the 94-year-old monarch and her 99-year-old husband are seen looking at an anniversary card made by Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, alongside other cards and letters sent by well-wishers.

The photograph was taken in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle earlier this week by Chris Jackson.

In the image, Her Majesty is wearing a pale blue double wool crepe dress by Stewart Parvin, and the Chrysanthemum Brooch.

The Chrysanthemum Brooch is made of sapphires and diamonds, set in platinum.

The Queen, when Princess Elizabeth, was photographed wearing the brooch in images taken on her honeymoon at Broadlands in Hampshire, and again in images takento mark The Queen and The Duke’s 60th wedding anniversary in 2007.
