Seven Decades of Style: Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip Mark 70 Years of Marriage

To celebrate seven decades of their marriage, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip have released a new set of portraits of the couple in Windsor Castle.
Married on Nov. 20, 1947 at Westminster Abbey, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip have been the subject of worldwide attention throughout the last 70 years — as much for their style as for their positions in the British monarchy and as a bellwether for major historical events. This year, the queen celebrated the date by naming Philip a Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order in a private ceremony that stood out from both their wedding and the public ceremonies they organized for their 60th anniversary in 2007.

But even after 70 years, the royal couple still retains its status as a style icon, often attracting worldwide media attention for their suits, regalia and hats.
