Monday November 20th 2017 will see the 70th wedding anniversary of HM The Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.

Married in post-war Britain when rationing was still the order of the day, the wedding was a welcome celebration after the horror of five years of war. The whole country celebrated. Who would have thought that 70 years later, this Royal couple who at the time had no idea that their destiny in five short years into the marriage would change so dramatically.

Through eight decades, they have worked together to lead the country and Commonwealth through some good times and bad - just as other married couples do with their own lives and families but on a much larger scale and in the full, public glare. It is rare for any couple to celebrate 70 years of married life and is a huge achievement by anyone's standards. So, let's celebrate!!

British Royal Teas will be celebrating - with a cup of tea and a cake!

Many congratulations and many more anniversaries to the most famous married couple in the world!
