Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip’s wedding was a nightmare for every bride.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have been married for over 70 years already. And while their relationship is smooth sailing, their wedding was not.

According to Lady Pamela Hicks, one of Queen Elizabeth II’s bridesmaids, the royal wedding was a “chaos.” Although the royal family prepared for it, several things didn’t turn as expected.

“The tiara broke and the bouquet was lost for a while, but The Queen was delighted to discover that her favourite corgi, Susan, had been hidden under a rug in her carriage, so that she could join them for their honeymoon at Broadlands [Lord Mountbatten's country estate,” she wrote.

The Telegraph also confirmed the broken tiara which happened two hours before the bride was set to walk down the aisle when her hairdresser tried to secure it to her veil. The Queen Mother consoled her daughter that there was still time to figure out a solution. The headpiece was driven under police escort to the jewelry shop to be welded. It was brought back just in time before the Queen walked the aisle.

Queen Mother kept the tiara for the rest of her lift and it is now rarely seen in public. Princess Anne used it when she married Mark Phillip.

As of late, Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II no longer live in the same house. The duke reportedly spends most of his time at Wood Farm. He loves the place because it is away from the public eye and it is peaceful.

“He very much enjoys Wood Farm, and he and the Queen still see each other at some point in the week or weekends,” the source said.

Although Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip live separately, they still talk everyday. The Queen understands and supports her husband because she believes that he deserves a “proper retirement.” If Prince Philip stays at Buckingham Palace, he would feel obliged to get involved in their engagements. He already retired from his royal duties in 2017.
