Queen Elizabeth II and His Royal Highness (HRH) Prince Philip have had an astonishing life together and have dedicated their lives to the duty of monarchy. The couple first met at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in 1939 when the Queen was just 13- years-old, and began exchanging letters before eventually becoming formally engaged in 1947, following the Queen’s 21st birthday. The royal pair married later in the same year and in November this year will celebrate their Platinum Wedding anniversary. The monarch was crowned just five years after their wedding following the death of her father King George VI, who died aged only 56, and although the transition changed their lives forever the couple have always approached their royal duties with a sense of humor and affection for each other that, over the decades, is testament to their enduring love.
The Royal Arms we see today have evolved over nine centuries, since Richard the Lionheart chose three lions to represent England. On January 1, 1801, the royal arms of Great Britain were superseded by those of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. This symbol on the King’s shield would immediately identify him in the midst of battle. The full version of the Royal Coat of Arms is now used only by the Queen in her capacity as the Sovereign. The Queen has a separate version of her arms for use in Scotland, giving the Scottish elements pride of place. HRH Prince Philips’s coat of arms represents his lineage as a Prince of Greece and Denmark on his paternal side and his descent of the Mountbatten family on his maternal side. The Duke of Edinburgh’s coat of Arms was granted in 1949 and represents his lineage as a prince of Greece and Denmark. Incorporated into the coin design is Ivy to represent wedded love and fidelity along with Myrtle which is the Hebrew emblem of Marriage.
