95-Year-Old Queen Elizabeth Marks Her 74th Wedding Anniversary

The Queen has poignantly reached her first wedding anniversary without her late husband the Duke of Edinburgh.

The difficult milestone, seven months after Philip died at the age of 99, would have seen the royal duo celebrate 74 years of marriage.

It’s also a month since the Queen was admitted to hospital overnight for preliminary examinations and ordered by her royal doctors to rest.

The 95-year-old, who also sprained her back and pulled out of attending the Remembrance Sunday service, has only been carrying out light duties since her October 20 hospital stay, including a face to face audience this week with the outgoing military chief General Sir Nick Carter.

However, recent reports suggest the Queen is determined to attend the joint christenings of her great-grandchildren in Windsor.

According to a newspaper outlet, she told her courtiers that she was set on being present as her granddaughters Princess Eugenie, 31 and Zara Tindall, 40, christen their babies at the All Saints Chapel in Windsor Great Park.

It’s thought that she will make an 11th-hour decision and was taking advice from her doctor, with a source saying she’s keen on being there because she knows it’s important for her children and great-grandchildren.

Princess Elizabeth married the dashing Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten in Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947.

Their enduring relationship lasted the longest of any British monarch and Philip was at the Queen’s side throughout the decades, supporting her as she dedicated herself to her role as head of state.

Following his death in April, the Queen said she and her family were in a period of great sadness, but that she was comforted by the tributes paid to him, and she said they’d been genuinely touched and continued to be reminded that Philip had such an amazing impact on many people during his life.

Philip’s funeral was held during coronavirus restrictions with the numbers strictly limited and the final goodbye taking place entirely inside the confines of Windsor Castle.

The Queen who sat alone, socially distanced from her family as she mourned.

In the days after the duke’s death, the Palace issued a photograph from the royal family’s private photo albums of the Queen and Philip relaxing together, sitting on the grass at the Coyles of Muick, a beauty spot on the Balmoral estate.

I’m sure that the Queen misses Philip terribly and it always looked like he made her laugh.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
