Her Majesty and Prince Philip

It’s not easy to find your soul mate but imagine searching for love when you have an abundance of wealth and privilege? It could sometimes make finding the ‘one’ impossible!

 

These royals didn’t allow their status to get in the way of finding their true love: from meeting in a pub, at university, the gym or at a festival, their first meetings are pretty ordinary – giving us all some hope that we too could find our very own Prince in the most normal of places!

Her Majesty and Prince Philip met in 1934 at the wedding of Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark (Philip’s cousin) and Prince George, Duke of Kent (Elizabeth’s uncle), when the Queen was just eight years old.

Five years later, the duo met again at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, exchanging letters after this meeting.
