New Zealand TWENTY DOLLARS Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Philip
50th Wedding Anniversary with Cameo
Following months of speculation, King George VI announced on 9 July, 1947 that his eldest daughter was to marry. |
Almost a year after the marriage, on 14 November, 1948 the couple again celebrated, this time the birth of their son, Prince Charles. It was at this time the couple, with their new baby, moved out of Buckingham Palace and into Clarence House, a home of their own. The births of their other three children, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward followed, the latter and youngest being born on 10 March, 1964.
During their 50 years of marriage the couple have undertaken official visits to all fifty member states of the Commonwealth. Throughout their busy schedule they have shown a tireless devotion to duty, earning them respect not just in Britain but the world over, while at the same time fulfilling their role as devoted parents and grandparents.
