He was a very handsome young man and the Queen quite beautiful.

 

Fun to see them...so many years together.

So good looking.  After seeing The Crown I think the actor who played him in the first season really looked a lot like him.  Thanks for posting.

@SeaMaiden  Thanks for sharing the link to those amazing photos of the Duke of Edinburgh. The photos say as much about the man as any written words could tell us. I could be off, but I believe he played polo until he was almost 80. The Duke was a very very handsome man throughout his life until these latter years where you could see the toll of illness and age taking effect.  Looks aside, the man was blessed with a fine character and intelligence. From most accounts that I've read, he was a fine man who was a valuable asset to the monarchy and life partner to Her Majesty, The Queen. 

Pray May the Duke rest in peace.

I can understand why Elizabeth was smitten with him as a teen-ager.  He was very handsome and dashing.

Thanks for sharing this link, @SeaMaiden.   There's always more to an individual than we know, even those we know personally but especially those who have prominence and we only know from a distance.   Lovely images from an interesting life.   Thanks, again!

Re: Some Great pictures of Prince Phillip

I have been interested in Elizabeth and Philip for a long time.

I have my little library and have always watched the documentaries.  Years ago, we even had a Corgi!

They are a love story for the ages.  As anyone who is up in years and married for a very long time, there is an appreciation of the ups and downs in life, and how love and commitment keep you together.  My DH just turned 80, and he’s a “young 80.”  One of his birthday presents was a new basketball hoop setup for the end of our driveway.
