Princess Elizabeth (now Her Majesty The Queen) married Prince Philip (b. 1921) at Westminster Abbey on 20 November 1947. Their wedding was followed by a honeymoon at Broadlands in Hampshire, the home of Prince Philip's uncle, Lord Mountbatten. This photograph shows them walking in the grounds there with the Princess's Welsh corgi, Susan. Sixty years later, for their Diamond Wedding Anniversary, The Queen and Prince Philip travelled to Broadlands once again. There they recreated an image from their honeymoon by being photographed facing one other, arms interlinked (RCIN 2937789).
