Queen Elizabeth Looks Radiant in Previously Unseen Personal Photo with Husband Prince Philip
The Royal family shared a never-before-seen photograph of His Royal Highness and Her Majesty sitting side-by-side in a memorable sight of the royal couple.
The day before her husband’s funeral, the monarch enticed the royal fans with a throwback picture of her and her now-late spouse, Prince Philip, with the family writing:
“The Queen wishes to share this private photograph taken with The Duke of Edinburgh at the top of the Coyles of Muick, Scotland in 2003.”
Their daughter-in-law, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, is the photographer behind the heartwarming image. It displayed the royal couple sitting on the grass alongside each other, with the Queen offering a warm smile while the Duke grinned.
The prince posed relaxing on the grass as he rested on his elbow laid back with a khaki bucket hat placed on his knee. His wife sat down with her hand rested on the grass.
She wore a green cardigan with a matching blouse and a maroon plaid skirt. The Queen completed her look with pearl earrings paired with a necklace of the same design.
Her husband wore khaki trousers with a blue crew neck sweater and a blue shirt. The view of a mountaintop is spotted behind the couple's lovely photo.
The statement on the post continued to note that the Queen and her family are grateful for all the messages of condolence received from people around the world while adding they have been amazed by memorable stories shared by the public about the Duke.
The picture comes after a week after Prince Philip's death. Buckingham Palace released a statement announcing his passing on April 19. A source revealed to Us Weekly that the Queen, 94, is heartbroken over the loss of her husband.
Having spent 28 days in the hospital, and returning home in March, the insider added the Duke of Edinburgh’s death came as a shock to his loved ones.
Born of Greek descent, his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, gave birth to him on the dining room table. The Duke was born on June 10, 1921, in Mon Repos, the family home on the Greek island of Corfu.
The table has now been saved for posterity. It is now a part of the boardroom furniture of a shipping company in the City of London. The prince's mother was advised to use a wooden table instead of a bed to give birth.
While his memory will still be kept alive, his dear friend and a cousin to his wife, King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, led the European royals to remember him.
The king described the Duke as a good friend. He and his spouse Queen Sonja shared images from the state visits to Sweden of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 1956 and 1983, captured with the Swedish royals.
At that time, she paused for a moment of reflection as the cannons fired and bells tolled in honor of the Duke of Edinburgh, wiping tears from her eyes. Prince Philip is now in his final resting place and was 99 years old.
