Meghan & Harry Celebrate Queen Elizabeth & Prince Philip's 72nd Anniversary with Heartfelt Post

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated the 72nd wedding anniversary of Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, with a loving post on their official Instagram page. 

It is now 72 years since Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip said their marital vows, and they have remained together ever since, in what has been one of the world's most celebrated marriages.

To celebrate with the Queen and her charming Prince, her grandson, Prince Harry, and his lovely wife, Meghan Markle, paid tribute to them with a sweet post on their official Instagram page. 

The Sussex Royals shared one of the pictures taken during the wedding celebration of the Queen and Prince Philip, while they were seated in the Royal Carriage. In the caption to the post, Meghan and Harry wrote:

The Official Twitter page of the Royal family also celebrated with the Queen and her husband with a tweet that read:

"Happy 72nd Wedding Anniversary to The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, who were married on this day in Westminster Abbey. #HappyAnniversary."

Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip have celebrated many milestones together as a couple, but their 72nd Wedding Anniversary was celebrated with them being 110 miles apart.

This is because while the Queen is currently based in London due to her Working Week, her husband, 98, who has retired from royal duties, is at Sandringham in Norfolk.

Prince Philip has been resting at the estate's Wood Farm since retiring in 2017, which was renovated some years back to make it comfortable for him to live in. 

It was a busy day for the Queen, as she held audiences with envoys from the Republic of Suriname and the Kyrgyz Republic.
