The couple lived together for 73 years. They were a happy couple. The Queen has revealed her personal secrets.
Happy family after 25 years of marriage is not a myth
The daughter of a British ruler married the grandson of the King of Greece in 1947. Elizabeth II was 21 years old. The girl fell in love with Philip Mountbatten. They managed to overcome marriage crises and maintain strong feelings. The queen noted that she made the right choice in life.
“If you ask me what I think about a happy family life after 25 years of marriage, I can answer simply and convincingly - this is not a myth,” said the monarch on the anniversary of her marriage to Philip.
My husband refuses compliments
Elizabeth II did not miss the opportunity to laugh at Philip. She loved her husband's cocky sense of humor and tried to match him at the right moment. So, during an official appeal to the British, the queen mentioned the difficult character of the Duke of Edinburgh.
“During these years as your queen, I have received immense family support. Prince Philip, as far as I know, is well known to you for refusing to compliment himself. But still, I will say that he has always been my support and guide,”Elizabeth II described her husband tenderly and humorously.

Queen Elizabeth first met the man of her life in 1934. Eight-year-old Lilibet, as her parents affectionately called the monarch, was a guest at the wedding of the Greek princess Marina at Westminster Abbey. The celebration was also attended by 13-year-old Philip. It was just a formal acquaintance.
I'm surprised at our marriage
In Britain, the platinum wedding is celebrated on the 70th anniversary of the celebration. The queen admitted that she had never heard of such a holiday when she got married. She reported this during a traditional Christmas speech.
“When we got married, I don't think there was such a thing as a platinum anniversary. Who knew we'd last that long? I myself am surprised at our marriage,”said the queen.
Philippe has a unique sense of humor
Prince Philip retired in 2017. He stopped making official tours and attending events. This decision was made due to the old age and state of health of the duke. Elizabeth II even managed to make this event cheerful so that her husband liked it.
“Prince Philip decided it was time to slow down. But I know that his unique sense of humor will remain our support,”said the queen about her husband.
Philip is my strength
Elizabeth II believes that without her husband she would not have been able to rule for so many years. Prince Philip supported the queen both in family matters and in workers. The ruling monarch announced this, saying goodbye to her beloved, who died on April 9, 2021.
“He was and remains my strength all these years. I, our whole family, this and many other countries, owe him more than he could have thought,”the wife of the Duke of Edinburgh paid tribute to.
Kate Middleton was banned from approaching the Queen at Prince Philip's funeral.
