On next Sunday ( 18th November) The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will host a dinner to celebrate the Diamond Wedding Anniversary of the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh. 20 members of the Royal family will attend the evening.
I´m not sure whether it will take place at Clarence House or Highgrove. (I coudn´t find a reliable source yet)

That will be interesting - hope we get some picture. How lovely it would be if HM received some beautiful new diamonds....

It's a very nice picture, but it would look better if they didn't have it reversed.

Prince Andrew offers insight into his parents' enduring marriage
Quote:
Speaking to ITN News, Andrew revealed his thoughts on the key to the royal couple's long-lasting marriage. "They recognise the fact that marriage is a partnership between two people," said the Prince. "Compromises have to be met on both sides, life has to continue, and in that life there has to be an element of discipline."

"It's such a challenge for any working family, juggling home life and work life," he added. "They never ever forgot their parental responsibilities. I remember being read to by my father on regular occasions."

Yeah, the "recreation" is very cool. I wonder who took the two pictures, though. Maybe Beaton took the 1947, and Snowdon took the 2007? It's a clever "recreation" and if accidental, as BP claims, it's funny that Prince Philip is wearing almost exactly the same kind of tie, and The Queen's outfits aren't the same but very similar.

Their body language in the pictures are so fascinating too, different in each and yet the same. Love it. You can see how their relationship has grown..... while certainly in love in 1947, look at how relaxed and contented in their lives they seem now in 2007.... no longer carrying that youthful restlessness.

We get used to how people look, with the right and left sides in the correct place. It's jarring when photos get reversed. Medals, brooches, and engagement rings on the wrong side are the usual give-aways.

It appears Tim Graham/Fiona Hanson are credited with the new photos, but I can't find a photographer for the original one.
Since my original message, I now see that Anwar Hussein is also credited. It may be a group of press then OR a representative from the "pool" and all rights are shared - we may never know who actually clicked the shutter!

Ok.... thanks for the answer. According to here the 1947 photo belongs to the Royal Collection and Tim Graham Photo Library bought rights to it. At the same link there is another photo from the 1947 honeymoon walk, which is even more sweet for its candidness.
