The Queen marks her 74th wedding anniversary without Prince Philip, seven months after his death.

The Queen commemorates their 74th wedding anniversary without Prince Philip, seven months after his death.

The Queen is marking the first anniversary of her marriage without her late husband, Prince Philip, who died tragically in a car accident.

Her Majesty, 95, would be celebrating 74 years of marriage with the Duke of Edinburgh after marrying him in 1947.

Philip passed away seven months ago today, at the age of 99.

The Queen sent a moving message about the “passage of time” as she prepared to commemorate the day.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been more than 50 years since Prince Philip and I first attended the General Synod,” the Queen said at the Church of England’s 11th General Synod’s opening session.

“While we frequently focus on all that has changed over the years, much has remained the same, including the Gospel of Christ and his teachings.”

The Queen fell in love with Philip when she was 13 years old and began writing to him.

They secretly got engaged in 1946, and Elizabeth’s father, King George VI, ordered that any formal engagement be postponed until she turned 21 in April 1947.

The couple finally married on November 20, 1947, at Westminster Abbey.

Throughout their long marriage, Philip remained by her side as her “strength and stay,” the longest of any British monarch.

After his death in April, the monarch said she and her family were in a “period of great sadness,” but that tributes paid to him had moved them.

Buckingham Palace also released a heartbreaking photo of the couple relaxing in Balmoral.

When Philip was laid to rest in Windsor Castle in April, the Queen was seen sitting alone in silent mourning for her husband of more than 70 years.

The Queen is still recovering from a sprained back that kept her from attending the Remembrance Sunday service last week.

After an overnight stay in the hospital, doctors advised her to take a break from official duties.

The Queen was back to her regular duties when she met with General Sir Nick Carter, the Chief of the Defence Staff, at Windsor Castle on Wednesday.

Prince Charles also admitted that his mother would face difficulties as she got older, but that she was doing well.

When Charles was asked how the Queen was doing, he replied, “She’s fine, thank you very much.”

“Once you hit 95, it’s not as easy as it used to be.”

It’s a struggle for me, even at 73.”
