Seven decades together.

I feel so bad for Queen Elizabeth. To be married to someone for 70 plus years, her heart must be broken.

And she cannot even mourn in private.

Rest In Peace, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburg
 
99 3/4 s years is one heck of a run.   The House of Glücksburg (changed to Mountbatten after WWII) is proud of you

Gefn:
There are some absolutely beautiful photos of a very young  Queen Elizabeth with her husband when they were courting, and then through the years. Here.

So, Meghan and What's-His-Name will return to the UK?  Might be awkward.
