Seven months after Philip’s death
Queen celebrates her wedding anniversary as a widow

Elizabeth and Philip tied the knot 74 years ago. The royal connection lasts well over 70 years. Now it is the first anniversary of the monarch’s wedding anniversary after Philips’ death this spring.

A good seven months after the death of her husband Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth II celebrates the wedding day alone for the first time. It was 74 years since Elizabeth and Philip were married on November 20, 1947 in London’s Westminster Abbey. It was the longest marriage of a British monarch in history. Prince Philip died on April 9 at the age of 99.

The 95-year-old Queen is currently recovering on the advice of her doctors, spending a night in hospital a month ago. Most recently, a back problem prevented her from attending public meetings. However, a few days ago she received the outgoing Chief of Staff Nick Carter for a personal audience at Windsor Castle near London. Photos showed them standing and smiling.

His mother is doing well, said heir to the throne Prince Charles on a trip to the Middle East. “When you get to 95, it’s not as easy as it used to be. At 73 it’s bad enough,” said the Queen’s eldest son, referring to his own age.

November 20th has also been a negative date for the royals in recent times. Exactly two years ago, the Queen’s second eldest son, Prince Andrew, withdrew from his royal duties. The occasion was a failed interview with the BBC, in which Andrew actually wanted to wash away allegations of sexual abuse in connection with his former friend Jeffrey Epstein.

Since then, Andrew has barely been seen in public. A lawsuit is currently pending against him in New York: an American woman is demanding compensation for having Andrew sexually abused her as a teenager. The prince rejects the allegations.
