The moment Queen and Prince Philip's wedding was almost thrown into chaos

They added: “The tiara’s diamond bars give a modern, elegant and timeless style to whoever wears it.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on path to 'slowly recede’ from spotlight
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are destined to "slowly recede from top billing on the news agenda", a royal author has claimed.The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's brand depends on their royal connections, commentator and author Robert Hardman has claimed.And, as the time goes by following their split from the Firm, they are destined to no longer be at the forefront of the news agenda, the royal expert added.In an interview with website Write Royalty, Mr Hardman said: "I think their brand depends entirely on their royal status and their royal connections, and therefore that’s what they are going to have to trade on, however much they say otherwise."It will be the royal stuff in Harry’s book, when it comes out, that people want to know about, not the worthy charitable activity."And I think as time goes on, like the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, they will inevitably slowly recede from top billing on the news agenda."But I think it will be a slow process."

Archie's surname 'caused rift between Queen and Prince Philip' which left Duke fuming
royal surname given to two-year-old Archie Harrison by parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once caused a huge rift between the Queen and Prince Philip.Many of the younger members of the Royal Family today have their parent's titles as their surname with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis using the last name of 'Cambridge'. But instead of being called 'Sussex', Archie and Lilibet Diana instead use the Royal Family's 'official' last name of Mountbatten-Windsor.It's a name which resulted from a huge debate when it was officially introduced decades ago, with discussion on the topic even reaching the Houses of Parliament and proving a point of contention behind Buckingham Palace doors for the Queen and Philip.Before marrying then-Princess Elizabeth in 1947, Philip's official title was Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg, a name he abandoned in favour of the his grandparent's 'Mountbatten' as he prepared to become Duke of Edinburgh.But many commentators at the time, including Winston Churchill and the Queen's grandmother Queen Mary, stated ahead of the royal nuptials that they wanted Her Majesty to keep the surname 'Windsor' instead of taking her husband's name.In the end she decided to keep the Windsor name intact as per the family's wishes, leaving Philip apparently irritated for several years as their first two children Prince Charles and Princess Anne were born without a trace of of his surname.He reportedly said: "I am nothing but a bloody amoeba.

Queen's touching tribute to love-of-her-life Philip hidden in plain sight at memorial
The Queen was heavily involved in the planning of yesterday's memorial service for her late husband Prince Philip and left a beautiful tribute to him hidden in plain sight.The heartbroken monarch ensured there were plenty of personal touches at the event at Westminster Abbey - despite the congregation being 1,800 strong.Among the sweet tributes was one dated back to the day Her Majesty married Philip in November 1947 - in the same Abbey.That's because the flowers in the church for the memorial service were in shades of patriotic red, white and blue, with larger arrangements featuring blue eryngium – known as sea holly – a nod to the duke’s career in the Royal Navy, and his lifelong affection for the sea, Mirror reports.However, the smaller posies included white dendrobium orchids - the flowers that appeared in Princess Elizabeth’s wedding bouquet when she married Philip in 1947.The Queen is said to have personally requested orchids to be included in her wedding bouquet.The rest of the service itself also featured several of Prince Philip's poignant last requests that were finally honoured almost a year from his funeral.When he died last April aged 99, England was still in the grip of restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.This meant his funeral, held on April 17 at St George's Chapel in Windsor, was a much scaled-back service, with just 30 guests and no singing by the guests.It had been Philip's express wishes for the congregation to join and sing the rousing hymn Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer at his funeral.To stay up to date with all the latest news, make sure you sign up to one of our newsletters here.The hymn was sung by a small choir, guests at his funeral were not allowed to join in but yesterday (March 29),

Smiling Queen's new Platinum Jubilee pic includes touching tribute to beloved dad
Queen gave a subtle nod to her dad by wearing presents he gave her for her 18th birthday in a new picture to mark her Platinum Jubilee. Candid snaps of the monarch admiring cards and various memorabilia at home have been released as she kicks off her jubilee celebrations.Royal fans will recognise the pair of dazzling brooches adorned on the left shoulder of her dress, as the set given to her as an 18-year-old.The accessories given to her by King George VI are a touching tribute to him 70 years since he died this Sunday (February 6), the Mirror reports.And it's not the first time the Queen, 95, has chosen to pay a subtle tribute to her loved ones with sentimental jewellery.The Queen has also worn sentimental jewellery for other important occasions including her Diamond Jubilee in 2012 and the 75th anniversary of VE Day.The then-Princess Elizabeth had a close relationship with her father and the two aquamarine and diamond clip brooches that he gave her on her 18th birthday in 1944 are believed to mean a lot to her.The two-piece art deco-style brooches were made by luxury jewellery company Boucheron from aquamarines and baguette, oval and round diamond.The Queen is pictured for the jubilee photo looking through her Platinum and Golden Jubilee cards and memorabilia as she sat with one of her pet corgis in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle.She came to the throne on February 6, 1952, following the death of George Vl from lung cancer. He died in the early hours of the morning at Sandringham.

Eerie moment eagle soared over Queen's head to signal her dad's death
The Queen was watching baboons in Africa as her entourage saw a sign in the sky from an eagle that King George VI passed away.Her Majesty was with Prince Philip in Kenya when her father died suddenly in 1952. They were poignantly watching the sun rise while taking in the amazing nature around them.The Queen, who was still officially Princess Elizabeth at that point, and the Duke of Edinburgh had just spent the night at the remote Treetops Hotel, which is only accessible via a ladder, in Aberdare Forest.They were in the middle of watching baboons in the nearby jungle when the Queen had climbed up to a look-out point at the top of the tree to see the dawn breaking.A friend of Philip’s was with them and noticed a bird fly over them, which at the time meant little significance but having learned the news soon after, the incident was more symbolic.Philip's equerry and friend, Mike Parker, was at the Queen’s side at the look-out when an eagle was spotted overhead, hovering right above the royals.He later recalled: “I never thought about it until later but that was roughly the time when the King died.”Birds have long been associated with a death, passing or a loved one or a sign from an individual who has already died.Many birds have been seen in folklore as symbols of death such as the cardinal, buzzard crow, swan and several others.However, the eagle is not widely considered to be a bird of death like the others.
