The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh celebrate their Blue Sapphire wedding anniversary on Tuesday. It is a landmark which no other British monarch has achieved, and one which may never be surpassed.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will today celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary as Her Majesty notches up yet another landmark in her Diamond Jubilee year.

Good for them

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Wishing them to continue celebrating their wedding's anniversary for many years to come ;)

From the headline on could deduce that Prince Philip is not celebrating...

Wow 65 years with the same old fart.

On a more serious note not too many marriages survive that long.  Happy Anniversary and hopefully many more.

King out ranks Queen, So because Elizebeth was born into the royal family and became Queen she outranks Philip who married into the family.

If Philip was born in the royal fmaily he would be kind, then if he married Elizebeth (if she wasn't royal blood, then she would still be Queen) It's jsut to do with blood line and rank.

You can never be the king unless you are blood.

I can't stand it all to be honest. As a couple I congratulate them. But nothing more than that. I dislike the idea of the royal family and think that some things should be left in the medieval times. Before soemone mentiones tradition, then stoning, hanging and many other barbaric things where "tradition". I know they are different, but the whole idea of a royal family in this day and age i find disturbing. Isn't eqaulity supposed to be improtant in modern times?

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Yeah.  King outranks Queen and the spouse of a Sovereign obviously cannot take a title that outranks the Sovereign.  So this means that the wife of a king can be known as "queen consort" (queen for short) because Queen is lower than King, but the husband of a Queen cannot be known as "king consort" because he would therefore have a title which outranks that of the Sovereign, and it is consitutionally impossible for anyone to outrank the Sovereign.  So, instead, he is given the title "prince consort".

The same thing applies to other titles.  The wife of an OBE can become a Dame whereas the husband of a DBE will not become a 'Sir' as a knight outranks a dame.

Elizabeth II is a proper Queen; the Monarch; the Sovereign; the Head of State.  She is a Queen Regnant.

The wife of a King, however, is only a Queen Consort and even though she has the title "Queen" she is not an actual Queen in her own right and does not have the powers of a Queen Regnant or King.

Or it could just be that with all the doom and gloom going on in the world, their wedding anniversary is a pleasant distraction.

Judging people and name calling is uncalled for on the basis you don't share the same point of view. Just because you don't give a toss about their anniversary it doesn't mean others shouldn't.

Neither does it mean we don't care about anything else you've pointed out in your post either.

oh my god this is the 21st century all this stupidity should be put to bed .no human is better then another because of a bloodline and respect is earned not a birthright.
