Details

In 1934, Princess Elizabeth first met Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark at the wedding of Philip’s cousin Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark to Prince George, Duke of Kent, and paternal uncle of Elizabeth. After another meeting in July 1939, the 13 year old Princess Elizabeth fell in love with Philip and they began to exchange letters. In 1946 Philip asked King George VI for his daughter Elizabeth’s hand in marriage in 1946. The King granted his request, providing any formal announcement was delayed until Elizabeth’s 21st birthday the following April.  Their engagement was officially announced on 9th July 1947. Before the marriage, Philip renounced his Greek and Danish titles as required by the Act of Settlement, 1701, converted from Greek Orthodoxy to Anglicanism and adopted the surname of his mother’s British family to become Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten.
 

At 11:30am on 20 November, 1947, Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip were married at Westminster Abbey, London. Princess Elizabeth was attended by eight bridesmaids, including her younger sister HRH Princess Margaret. Upon their marriage, Elizabeth took the title of her husband and became Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh. They had their honeymoon at Broadlands in Hampshire, home of Philip’s uncle, Earl Mountbatten.  Princess Elizabeth became Queen in 1952 upon the death of her father. 
They have 4 children: Charles (b. 1948), Anne (b. 1950), Andrew (b. 1960) and Edward (b. 1964). Prince Philip is the longest-serving royal consort in British history. On November 20th 2017, they celebrate their 70th (Platinum) Wedding anniversary.

 

This stunning and uniquely paired set of coins has been minted exclusively for The Bradford Mint to celebrate such a significant historical event. With only 499 minted worldwide these sets are undoubtedly due to sell out quickly.
