  •   grinranten Now this is a classic. Does this remind you of another couple? Something along the lines of {......} Cambridge..? This is often how Catherine and William look like when they're captured interacting with each other in public. 4h
  •   smhagerman I love how they make each other smile, to this day, they still make each other smile. I would have to say, that is what a good relationship has, the ability to make the other smile their genuine smile, not forced, not a smirk, but a smile. 1h

1947 - July 9th
.
The engagement of Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II), & Philip Mountbatten (Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh) was officially announced.
.
.
Elizabeth met her future husband, Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, in 1934 & 1937. They are second cousins once removed through King Christian IX of Denmark & third cousins through Queen Victoria. After another meeting at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in July 1939, Elizabeth though only 13 years old, said she fell in love with Philip & they began to exchange letters. Their engagement was officially announced on 9 July 1947.
.
The engagement was not without controversy: Philip had no financial standing, was foreign-born (though a British subject who had served in the Royal Navy during the Second World War), & had sisters who had married German noblemen with Nazi links.
.
Marion Crawford wrote, "Some of the King's advisors did not think him good enough for her. He was a prince without a home or kingdom. Some of the papers played long & loud tunes on the string of Philip's foreign origin." Elizabeth's mother was reported, in later biographies, to have opposed the union initially, even dubbing Philip "The Hun". In later life, however, she told biographer Tim Heald that Philip was "an English gentleman".
.
Before the marriage, Philip renounced his Greek & Danish titles, converted from Greek Orthodoxy to Anglicanism, & adopted the style Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten, taking the surname of his mother's British family. Just before the wedding, he was created Duke of Edinburgh & granted the style His Royal Highness
