"In a letter from The King following Princess Elizabeth's marriage to Prince Philip in 1947, he offered a glimpse into their closeness as a family: 'I have watched you grow up all these years with pride under the skilful direction of Mummy, who, as you know is the most marvellous person in the World in my eyes, and I can, I know, always count on you, and now Philip, to help us in our work."

The caption also referenced Prince Philip's role as Her Majesty's consort throughout her reign. Quoting the Queen, it read: "'He has quite simply been my strength and stay all these years,' the Queen said in her speech to mark the couple's Golden Wedding Anniversary. 'I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know.'"

The sweet message also attributed the Queen's support to her grandchildren as well as her son King Charles, who following Philip's retirement in 2019, accompanied The Queen to many royal events.

The caption concluded: "'The Queen's kindness and sense of humour, her innate sense of calm and perspective, and her love of family and home are all attributes I experience first-hand.'"
