The Queen and Prince Philip celebrate their 73rd wedding anniversary

To celebrate their 73rd wedding anniversary, The Queen and Prince Philip have released a new photo.

In what has been a whirlwind journey, the two have stood by each other's side through thick and thin.

Which is why the never-before-seen photo seems to be especially special when you realise what the couple are looking at.

The image which was taken by Chris Jackson in the Oak Room of Windsor Castle earlier this week, shows the Duke of Edinburgh and The Queen looking at an anniversary card made especially for them by three of their great-grandchildren.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis made the adorable card for their great grandparents and it seems that they loved it.

The card also sits alongside a series of other letters and well wishes from royal followers.

The Palace shared the sweet pic to its Instagram page with a congratulatory note to the royals.

Fans flocked to the image, sharing their own well wishes.

"So glad to see the Duke looking well. They are amazing. Best wishes to them," wrote one.

Another said: "Wishing a happy wedding anniversary to your majesty."
