THE LOVE CIRCLE OF PRINCESS ELIZABETH AND PRINCE PHILIP: HOW THEY MET

Although monarchy has a way in which they conduct their affairs, Queen Elizabeth’s union to Prince Philip didn’t necessarily follow that route. In the past, princesses were betrothed to princes to extend territoriality; it was on very few occasions that a prince and a princess would handpick their partner. The love story of Prince Phillip and Queen Elizabeth was a sweet and compassionate one which dates as far back as 1939.

The duo started as friends after seeing each other often at several Royal gatherings and ceremonies. Queen Elizabeth instantly fell in love and in 1946, they decided to tie the knot. The couple solidified their bond with a low-key function. They considered the excess loss that was accrued after World War II and chose to spend very little to curtail extravagances. However, the wedding party was at Buckingham Palace, with a 9-foot-tall wedding cake!
