I caught some of it on TV. I am trying to visualize them as a model of fidelity and perseverance in all things. It probably would be easier if we had not been subjected to all the dirty laundry, not that any of us can throw stones.

I think it is the longest royal marriage in history.

Technically, Prince Henri and Princess Isabelle of France (married 1931, he died 1999) and Prince Bernhard and Queen Juliana of the Netherlands (married 1937, both died 2004) had longer marriages, but sadly both couples separated in their old age, though they never divorced. The marriage of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip is certainly the longest SUCCESSFUL royal marriage.

Thank you for honouring the royal anniversary. A refreshing contrast to those ultra-sectarian Catholics unable to see past Henry VIII!

They look so young and sweet in that photo. Happily I have basically escaped hearing anything unpleasant about the Queen and Prince Philip's marriage - so much better than all I've heard about their children. I don't see why it matters if there have been any issues - far more important is that they are still very much together. I pray we may all know such long-lasting love!
