  • Because they really are the ultimate power couple

    Last year, Netflix’s popular drama series The Crown had us all completely hooked on the history of The Queen and Prince Philip’s relationship. Billed as Netflix’s most expensive show ever, Claire Foy and Matt Smith (who played the iconic royal couple) had us on the edge of our seats for all 10 episodes of its first series. So we thought it was high time that this royal partnership was celebrated in all its visual glory.

    From when they started corresponding way back in 1939 when Philip was in the Royal Navy, and later when they got wed on 20th November 1947, to the present day where the pair attend countless royal duties together, they’re rarely seen in public without one another.

    After almost 70 years of marriage and raising four children together, the loving moments are still very much there in abundance. From that time they shared a blanket when they were cold at the Braemar Highland Gathering, to when Prince Philip chivalrously picked up The Queen’s flowers after she’d dropped them, their relationship is enough to warm even the coldest of hearts.

    They’re rarely cuddly (it’s not exactly royal protocol for them to be overly affectionate in public), but they can often be seen having a cheeky giggle together, as if they are sharing the most hilarious inside joke.

    Of course, the pair will have been each other’s strength and support over the years, too. The Queen famously said of Philip, ‘He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years’, which is a real testament to how sweet the two of them are.

    In celebration of this enduring romance, here are all of the times The Queen and Prince Philip gave us *all* of the #RelationshipGoals. Get ready to feel all the feels as you scroll through their sweetest moments…
