I'm impressed by this article. The Daily Mail (I usually say Fail) has published a very heartwarming and pertinent article about a 70 year old marriage that has endured through many decades of ups and downs and changes in a fast moving world. Mr. Hardman is to be commended.

From this article, I can actually see how, from the very beginning, HM, The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have been a central force that holds their country, the commonwealth nations and the people together. Tidbits on just how the people rallied around to ensure there was a joyous and a very suitable wedding fit for a princess with the public even making personal sacrifices to make it so just totally warms my heart.

Next month this couple will quietly celebrate their platinum wedding anniversary of 70 years. Not only is it a royal record or something that most of us can only aspire to, what stands out for me that the consistency and the steadfast connection that this couple has maintained with the people for the past 70 years. They may be celebrating quietly and privately but I don't think there are many people out there that won't be winging their own special congratulatory thoughts to this beloved couple.

Not only was Elizabeth and Philip's marriage made in heaven, it was also cemented with the support of all the people whose lives they have touched over the years.

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.

I did not trust Joe and checked the WCastle web page:

"State Apartments closed on:
20 November

8 December

12 December

5 - 19 January 2018"

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.
