The Queen and Prince Philip: A look back at their life together

Married 68 years, it was love at first sight for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, who met as teenagers.

Elizabeth would be crowned queen just five years after their wedding, changing their lives forever. Through all the pressures and formalities of royal life, the pair have always put each other first a testament to their enduring affection.

Dancing at galas, attending state functions and visiting exotic lands together, the longest-married British monarchs have managed to keep their love – and sense of adventure! – very much alive.
