Just a year after the newlyweds have exchanged their vows, the world greeted their first son – Prince Charles. In the next following years, they had three more children: one daughter – Princess Anna, and two more sons – Princes Andrew and Edward. The last two were born when Elizabeth was already ruling the country.

At one of these pictures, the 91-year-old Queen and her 96-year-old spouse are standing side by side with the smiles on their faces just as wide and happy as all these years back in 1947.

Elegant as always, Queen Elizabeth II had one very special detail about her outfit. The woman was wearing a beautiful yellow gold brooch, encrusted with rubies and diamonds. Prince Philip presented her the brooch more than 50 years ago, in 1966.

Today, this wonderful couple is still a source of inspiration for millions of people worldwide. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are one of the best real-life examples of a true devotion, to both their partner and the sacred vows they have given each other all these years ago.
