Heart this

Friday I'm In Love

With Queens Birthday weekend this weekend, I couldn't resist sharing this balcony image from Queen Elizabeth II's wedding to Prince Philip. The Queen was still Princess Elizabeth when she was married to Prince Philip in November 1947 and the ceremony was recorded and broadcast via radio to 200 million people worldwide. Amazingly, the couple received 2500 wedding gifts! This image is not quite the kiss on the balcony that we were lucky enough to see from Prince William and Princess Catherine - remembering this is 1947 though - but I think their lovely smiles are testament to the occasion and I am in awe that this wonderful couple have been married for 65 years (the traditional UK 'gift' of a 65th wedding anniversary is Blue Sapphire) and going strong! Can't you just see the likeness of Prince William in this young Prince Philip? Lets hope in 65 years time images of Kate and William are still gracing the internet!
