Prince William and his wife have shared a close-up of the card their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, made for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as they mark 73 years of marriage.
The Queen and the duke released a new picture on the evening of Thursday 19 November, showing them looking at cards they had received for their 73rd wedding anniversary, which is 20 November.
The duke, 99, holds a special card, handmade by their great-grandchildren, and the couple looked delighted with it.
The next morning, the Queen’s grandson William and his wife Kate shared a close-up of the card on social media as they sent their best wishes.
The picture was shared with the words: “Wishing a very happy wedding anniversary to Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh!”
It’s thought the three young royals may have been able to see their great-grandparents over the summer as the Queen and the duke took their annual holiday to Scotland, where the royals traditionally visit them.
But with England in a national lockdown, the royals will once again be split up.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their children to Anmer Hall in Norfolk during the first lockdown and returned to Kensington Palace, their London home, before school began again in September.
George, seven, and Charlotte, five, attend Thomas’s in Battersea.
Louis, two, is not yet in school.
The Queen, 94, and Philip are together in Windsor Castle, having spent more of this year together than they had done in previous years.
Philip retired from royal duties in 2017 and went to live in Wood Farm on the Sandringham Estate, while the Queen stayed living in London and Windsor for most of the year.
They would have reunited during the summer and Christmas, but the pandemic has afforded them more time to spend together.
Philip flew down to Windsor by helicopter in March and they were there together until they went to Scotland and then Sandringham over the summer.
The Duke of Edinburgh came back to Windsor with the Queen rather than stay in Sandringham.
