During a public engagement Wednesday, June 9, Elizabeth II paid tribute to her husband Prince Philip with an object very symbolic in her eyes.
Since the disappearance of prince Philip on April 9, Elizabeth II multiplies the tributes. If she recently had the honor of seeing one of her eleven great-grandchildren wear the loving nickname given to her by her husband, the Queen is also no slouch when it comes to honoring the memory of it, with whom she was married 73 years. And since his death, she seems to think of him more than ever during his engagements. Thus, Wednesday, June 9, she did not fail to bring out of her drawers a gift he had given her for an event that marked their life: their marriage.
During a videoconference from Windsor Castle, Elizabeth II thus appeared dressed in a dress printed with flowers, with hanging above the chest, a butterfly-shaped brooch, set with diamonds and rubies. This is a gift given to him prince philip after their marriage in November 1947, and which the Queen had not worn in public since 2019 according to The Sun, during a mass organized in Sandringham. A great way to pay homage to the one who was his “force”, and who would have celebrated Thursday, June 10 its 100 years. An event that Elizabeth II did not forget, and that she even celebrated very discreetly.
This gift that Elizabeth II received for her husband’s birthday
A few days ago, in fact, the Queen received at Windsor Castle a very symbolic rosebush, which bears the name of the Duke of Edinburgh. “In memory of her husband, Prince Philip, the Queen received a ‘Duke of Edinburgh rose bush’ to mark what would have been her 100th birthday tomorrow”, thus reported the journalist Victoria Arbiter about this gift, which was then planted in the garden of the castle of Elizabeth II, right where her husband died. And to receive this gift, no fascinator or black purse like it is for the queen. Indeed, it is very relaxed that she appeared to discover this rosebush renowned by the Royal Horticultural Society, wearing a printed blue dress and a white cardigan, sunglasses on her nose.
