Happy 72nd Anniversary to Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness Prince Philip! 💗 They were married at Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947, when the ‘then’ Princess Elizabeth was 21 years old. There were 2,000 guests in attendance, and it was broadcast on the radio around the world.
The momentous occasion was not without a minor controversy over Elizabeth's inclusion of "to obey" in her wedding vows, as some thought a future queen shouldn't obey anybody at all. After the wedding they moved to Clarence House near Buckingham Palace.
