Silver Wedding of Queen & Prince Philip

Categories: Royalty

At the time of their wedding Philip's title was Philip Mountbatten, Duke of Edinburgh, not Prince, and the Queen was still Princess Elizabeth. If their family names had not been Anglicised earlier in the century, it would have been a Saxe-Coburg-Gotha / Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glucksburg wedding instead of a Windsor / Mountbatten one.
