The Cambridge's and the Sussex's have marked the 72nd wedding anniversary of their grandparents with very special, but different, social media posts.
Prince William and Kate decided to honour Her Majesty the Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh with two photos on their Instagram. First, a black and white throwback shot from the couple’s first post-wedding appearance during their honeymoon, in which they smile at each other and link arms. A second photo shows the Queen and Prince Philip more recently, but still sharing a laugh.
“Wishing Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh a very happy 72nd Wedding Anniversary!” they wrote.
Meghan and Harry chose a black and white photo of the prince’s grandparents riding in an open air carriage with smiles on their faces.
“Happy anniversary to Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh! On this day, seventy-two years ago, they were married at Westminster Abbey,” they captioned the celebratory post. “Many congratulations!”
The official Royal Family Instagram account, which shares the work and personal milestones of the Queen and other members of the family, also celebrated the occasion by sharing a photo from the couple’s wedding. The bride and groom wave at gathered crowds from the balcony of Buckingham Palace after their ceremony at Westminster Abbey.
