1. That article is written by Robert Hardman - the guy who wrote the book ''Our Queen'' in 2011, where William told him that the Queen wanted him to marry in his Irish Guards uniform.

2. He's also written the BBC documentary ''The Queen's Castle'' (2005), the BBC documentary ''Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work'' (2007), the ITV documentary ''Our Queen'' (2013) and the ITV documentary ''Our Queen at Ninety'' (2016).

3. All his royal articles is very serious and pro monarchy.

Thanks, m'friend for more information on Mr. Hardman. He knows his stuff and his book "Our Queen" is one that I don't have yet and am adding it to my November list of books to get.

I read in another Daily Mail article that the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have lost so many friends recently that another big celebration wouldn't feel the same and would have a sad note to it.

That would be a consideration for not having a large party, but wouldn't necessarily for not having the public Service of Thanksgiving.

Having seen Prince Philip on the balcony during the Remembrance Day Service I can only agree with the theory that had he continued to reside at BP he would feel obliged to do his bit.

During the Service he leaned on the wall and leaving the balcony he was bent over coughing his heart out. It seems he would not even allow himself a cough during the Service. A public Thanksgiving Service would not only be another "Command Performance", but he and Elizabeth would be the total focus and that would be exhausting.

For all their people love and respect them in a very "British" way, they would still have wanted to show them just how much they appreciate them celebrate such a rare milestone and would have expected a balcony appearance at the very least. That is not only tiring, cold temperatures could only raise further concerns about Prince Philip's health which seems to have become be a day to day concern.

A look back at the Silver, Golden and Diamond Wedding Anniversary Celebrations in videos:

Silver Wedding Anniversary 1972:

November 20th:


Watch from 2:12:


Golden Wedding Anniversary 1997:
Even though the Queen was popular in the 1990 too, this was right after Diana's death, so the ITN commentaries below isn't as praising of the Queen as they were for her 80th/90th Birthdays and her Diamond Jubilee.

Two quotes from this long Telegraph article from Sally Bedell Smith:
The Queen and Prince Philip at 70 years of marriage: a portrait of domestic intimacy
Quote:
Late last spring, the Queen arrived at Cumberland Lodge, a royal residence in Windsor Great Park where her father, King George VI, had established an educational foundation to encourage exchanges between people with differing religious and political views. As the foundation’s patron, she was due to be briefed by one of her former advisers on plans for its 70th anniversary celebrations.

At the last minute, the Duke of Edinburgh—only days away from his 96th birthday—joined his wife for the reception and presentation. Spotting the Queen’s courtier who he hadn’t seen in over a decade, Prince Philip exclaimed, “I see you are being recycled!”

The Queen couldn’t help smiling. Such moments of levity have been an essential ingredient in their 70-year marriage, the anniversary of which is on Monday. During their honeymoon at Birkhall on the royal Balmoral estate in November 1947, Philip set out his ambition for their life together in a letter to his mother-in-law: “to weld the two of us into a new combined existence that will not only be able to withstand the shocks directed at us but will also have a positive existence for the good.”
Quote:
As the Duke of Edinburgh spends more time in his retirement at Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate – a modest refuge of tranquility that he has enjoyed for many years – he and his wife of seven decades can enjoy the camaraderie of shooting luncheons in a nearby barn. When she is at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle carrying out her duties, he remains her emotional touchstone, and they try to speak on the phone every day.

There was a special poignancy in their moment of solidarity on the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office while watching the Remembrance Sunday commemoration scarcely a week before their milestone wedding anniversary. It was a reminder that their public role together will continue to diminish.

No service will be held in their honour at Westminster Abbey this year as there was a decade ago. But it is worth remembering the verse by poet laureate Andrew Motion read by Judi Dench that day, commending Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh for “a life where duty spoke in languages their tenderness could share, a life remote from ours because it asked each day, each action, to be kept in view.”

Two days to go, and more articles from the Telegraph and DF:

Queen to celebrate another 70th anniversary milestone as entire family gathers in Windsor to mark the occasion
Quote:
In their record-breaking lifetime of service, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will no doubt have lost count of the toasts raised to their achievements, health and happiness.

Surely none, though, will mean more than seeing their children, grandchildren and closest friends raise a glass to them on Monday evening, in celebration of 70 years of the most successful marriage in British Royal history.

The Queen and Duke will mark their platinum wedding anniversary on November 20, in a milestone no other monarch has achieved and will likely never surpass.

The date will see them join a select group of devoted spouses to reach the landmark anniversary, with the Queen helping just 1,260 other couples celebrate a 70th wedding anniversary with a personal card from Buckingham Palace so far this year.

It is another landmark for Her Majesty, who has already become the longest-reigning monarch in UK history at 65 years, and the longest-lived at 91.
Two quotes from this long article:
'I helped make The Queen's wedding dress, and loved it so much I used the pattern for my own'
Quote:
It may be 70 years since the wedding of Princess Elizabeth to Phillip Mountbatten, but Betty Foster’s memory of the time is still as sharp as a dressmaker’s pin. Now 89, Betty, from Harold Wood in Essex, was one of the seamstresses working in the studio of couturier Norman Hartnell when he was entrusted with the commission of a lifetime: to create the wedding gown of the glamorous young Princess and future Queen.

“I think it was the most wonderful dress of the century,” Betty declares proudly. “When you look back at the Queen Mother’s wedding dress, or Queen Victoria’s, they were very plain by comparison.”
Quote:
“One day, the Queen (later the Queen Mother), Princess Margaret, the Duchess of Gloucester and Queen Mary arrived because they wanted to see where the dress was being made. Mr Hartnell was telling them about some Americans who had rented a flat opposite to see if they could get a glimpse of the dress. Of course, they couldn’t, but Queen Mary said in her very deep voice: ‘What a bore!’ She was so regal, every inch a Queen.”

Although Betty didn’t go to the wedding itself, she still remembers having a special ticket for a viewing point outside Buckingham Palace where she glimpsed the Princess in the carriage.

“She looked so beautiful,” she gasps at the memory. Years later, she saw the dress at an exhibition at the palace. “I wanted to see the back, because I never remembered if I made 20 or 22 buttonholes, but I couldn’t see. I think it’s getting very frail now but it was still magical.”
Queen's 70th wedding anniversary marked with stamps | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
A new set of stamps is being issued to commemorate the 70th wedding anniversary of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, including images of their wedding and honeymoon.

The six stamps include an image of the royal couple on their honeymoon in the grounds of Broadlands, Romsey, Hampshire, looking at photographs of their wedding and one of the royal couple walking down the aisle of Westminster Abbey after their wedding service on November 20 1947.

Two stamps mark their engagement announcement in July 1947, showing the couple at Buckingham Palace.

These are such great articles and photos. Thank you for taking the trouble to post all the links, ROYAL NORWAY.

Seventy years married. What a wonderful achievement it is, a journey together that began on a cool November day amid the austerity of post war London. and a record that probably will not be broken for a very very long time. I hope the couple have a wonderful time at the celebratory dinner with all their family around them and reflect on the happy memories of all the years.
