Elizabeth and Philip: Love and Duty

Episode 1 of 1

As Her Majesty The Queen mourns the loss of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, this compelling documentary revisits remarkable events from their long and loving marriage and explores its significance to a nation. Every step of their life together was played out in public and, for over 70 years, the couple played a crucial role in the enduring popularity of the monarchy. Elizabeth and Philip: Love and Duty looks at a partnership built on the strong foundations of mutual respect, a shared sense of humour and a dedication to duty. We hear from contributors ranging from personal friends to royal watchers and from those involved in pivotal moments and milestones in their married life. From their fairytale wedding in 1947, in the spectacular surroundings of Westminster Abbey, Elizabeth and her prince captured the imagination of a nation. Their long marriage was a powerful symbol of durability and strength rooted in the values of an earlier age. Philip was both her husband and the man who swore to serve his Queen until the day he died. The programme explores how the Duke dedicated himself to this unique role and helped the Queen steer Britain through decades of change.
