Queen-and-PhilipHere’s one of several portraits of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip that Buckingham Palace released on the occasion of the royal couple’s 70th wedding anniversary today. Elizabeth is wearing a brooch that Philip gave her in 1966. (Matt Holyoak / CameraPress)

Finally, the Queen and her prince celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary yesterday. Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor and Philip Mountbatten tied the knot in Westminster Abbey in 1947; she was 21, he was 26. Her name could have been Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, given that her paternal great-great grandfather was German (Prince Albert, married to Queen Victoria, whose mother also was German). But having some German heritage during World War I was not cool in Britain, so in 1917, her grandfather, King George V, announced that the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha would become the House of Windsor. (When his cousin, German Emperor Wilhelm II, heard the news, he joked that he was going to see the play ‘The Merry Wives of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha.’)

“Albert and Victoria were natally prolific; they had nine kids, and Victoria married off eight of them to members of other prominent royal families across Europe. As a result, her great-great-granddaughter Elizabeth is related to just about every European royal house: Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, King Harald V of Norway, Queen Sofía of Spain, former King Constantine II of Greece, former King Juan Carlos I of Spain, and others. Even her own husband is a cousin. Hope they have enough cake at the party.” – SOURCE: Fast Forward, The Boston Globe
