Amid the wishes pouring in, PEOPLE reports that the Queen and Prince Philip did not spend their anniversary together as they had prior engagements.

While Prine Phillip was in Sandringham, Norfolk, the Queen stayed in London, where she lives as part of her working week.

The duo stayed apart as the Queen has duties to fulfill in London while Phillip, who retired from royal duty in August 2017, has been resting at the estate's Wood Farm.
