A new photograph has been released to mark the occasion which shows the Queen and Prince Philip sitting together on a sofa in the Castle's Oak Room reading a home-made card from the Cambridge children.

Her brooches are often imbued with special meaning - when she addressed the nation at the height of the first lockdown in April, promising that "we will meet again", she wore a brooch fashioned from diamond and turquoise - a stone prized for its protective and talismanic properties.

"This new image has been released to mark the 73rd wedding anniversary of The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh tomorrow", the official Instagram account of the Royal Family said in a post shared yesterday.

In the photograph, a smiling Prince Philip holds the card in his hand.

The colourful card, with a pop-out figure of 73, was one of several anniversary cards and letters sent by well-wishers to the couple, with a small pile shown on a nearby table.

The Queen and the Duke have been spending the national lockdown over the ongoing coronavirus pandemic at Windsor Castle in England, and their anniversary celebrations are expected to be a low-key affair.

The couple, who were married on November 20, 1947, at Westminster Abbey, will celebrate their wedding anniversary at Windsor Castle on Friday. The marriage turned out to be the longest in the history of the British monarchy, and has lasted over seven decades. The royal couple had spent their honeymoon at Broadlands in Hampshire. Their great grandchildren, meanwhile, are isolating at Anmer Hall in Norfolk with their parents.
