Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten and his bride, Princess Elizabeth of York, on their wedding day. On the morning of his wedding Philip, who'd renounced his Greek and Danish titles, was given the style "His Royal Highness" and the title "Duke of Edinburgh" by his new father-in-law, King George VI.
The Romanov nuptial mantle clasp. This was used to fasten the nuptial cloak together and is actually a massive piece.
When then princess Elizabeth was born in 1926, her father was still the Duke of York—with no hint he’d ever be king. After Edward VIII abdicated the throne in 1936, 10-year-old Elizabeth would become the next in line. She’s seen here at her christening, when she was about one month old.

Private emotions: Queen Elizabeth holding Prince Andrew
Queen Elizabeth II - I think there will always be something comforting about QEII. I'm not a monarchist, just an aussie girl. So maybe its because she has been there on the back of all our coins, maybe because her picture used to hang on the wall at school and at girl guides. She's always just been there... Weird, but true.
Queen Elizabeth II - great photo!
The Queen Mum, age 7... Love this photo
