Happy anniversary, Gan-Gan!

The sweet card that Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis made for Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip to mark their 73rd wedding anniversary has been revealed.

Kate Middleton and Prince William unveiled the brightly-colored card their kids made that was featured in the official palace photo to celebrate the couple's milestone on Friday, November 20.

"Gan-Gan" is what George, 7, Charlotte, 5, and Louis, 2, call the Queen – who has eight great-grandchildren in total.

The sweet artwork was shown in a simple social media post which added the Cambridge family's congratulations to the couple: "Wishing a very happy wedding anniversary to Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh!"

The Queen and Philip look thrilled with the colorful card. Like millions of people around the world, they have been separated from their families for long periods of time amid the ongoing pandemic and have missed the chance to entertain or greet and hug their great-grandchildren.

It is another milestone in a lifetime of landmark moments. Next year, the couple — and their family — will mark Philip's 100th birthday. It was also recently announced that plans are underway for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebration for her 70 years on the throne in 2022.

Last year, they spent the anniversary apart — with Philip in Norfolk, about 110 miles from London — and the monarch had duties in London. She spent some of the day holding audiences and then later she was out on a visit and joked when she was asked to sign the visitor's book: “Well, of course I know what the date is!”
