70 Years in Love! Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth Enjoy Sunny Polo Date
The Queen and her consort shared a polo outing for two
Prince Philip may have retired from public duties and kept out of the limelight at recent events, but he still loves polo — and was visibly overjoyed to join wife Queen Elizabeth at the Royal Windsor Cup over the weekend.
On Sunday, the pair, who will celebrate their 71st wedding anniversary in November, attended a match near their Windsor Castle home. The Queen, 92, wore a peach coat and hat alongside Philip, 97, who sported a suit paired with an olive green tie.
It was the second weekend in a row that Philip joined his wife for polo. They attended Cartier International Day on June 17 earlier this month. And of course, the couple regularly spent time at Guards Polo Club in their younger days.
While Philip has missed a few royal events in past weeks — most notably Trooping the Colour, the official celebration of the Queen’s birthday, and Royal Ascot — polo is his passion. He clearly wanted to support the Queen as she handed out prizes.
