Official photo released to mark 70th wedding anniversary of Britain's queen”

Buckingham Palace issued a new photographic portrait of Queen Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip yesterday to mark their upcoming 70th wedding anniversary.

The royal couple will mark Monday's platinum anniversary with a private dinner with family and friends at Windsor Castle.

Seventy years on, the new photograph, which was taken early in November by British photographer Matt Holyoak from Camera Press, captures the stability of the royal marriage which is deemed to have been the bedrock of the monarchy.

The Queen is wearing a cream day dress by her favourite British designer and official dresser since 2002, Angela Kelly, which she previously wore 10 years ago at a thanksgiving service to mark the couple's 60th wedding anniversary. She also has the Scarab brooch pinned to her chest; the brooch, in yellow gold, carved ruby and diamond, was a personal gift from the Duke to the Queen in 1966.

On 20 November 1947, at 11.20pm Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip were married at Westminster Abbey.

In 2015, Queen Elizabeth became the country's longest reigning monarch, surpassing Queen Victoria, and in February 2016 she became the first monarch to celebrate her sapphire jubilee, commemorating 65 years on the throne.
