Happy Anniversary.........

On Tuesday the Queen and Prince Phillip will celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary. I remember listening to the wedding on the radio (no television for us until the Coronation in 1953). On the oficial site there is a look behind the scenes, did you know that the then Princess had to save up her clothing coupons for the material and that the fruit for the cake was a gift from Girl Guides in Austalia. It is worth a look for a world that is no more. The most moving part of the site for me is the letter from King George VI to his daughter the day after the wedding. Not King to future Queen just a father to his beloved daughter.
