MARRIAGE UNTIL DEATH SEPARATE
Not to mention, if we said “all the details of the Queen’s life”! Indeed, many details of Elizabeth II’s life that are unknown to new generations are also being discussed again. One of them is her husband. Prince Philip The marriage of Prince Philip, which started in 1947 and lasted for more than half a century until the Prince’s death on April 9, 2021… The most emphasized issue is whether Prince Philip, with whom he was married for 74 years, ever cheated on the Queen…
THERE ARE VARIOUS CLAIMS
There are many claims on this subject that have been repeated since the very first period of their marriage, perhaps never proven due to their position. The common point that they all unite is that Philip cheated on his wife Elizabeth, or Lilibet, as he used to use himself, not once, but several times.
HE PICKED A BEAUTIFUL GIRL AND DIDN’T TALK TO ANYONE OTHER
According to a claim, Prince Philip chose a good-looking girl at cocktails or parties and didn’t want to talk to anyone else but her. According to many royal watchers, it’s no wonder women find a young, tall and handsome prince like Prince Philip attractive. That’s why what happens at such events are ordinary events.
INTERESTING CLAIM IN THE BOOK
The Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, didn’t like to go to the trouble of staying away from a woman he was attracted to, according to Noel Botham, who is known for his books on the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret and his ex-bride Princess Diana.
DID HE LIVE IN LOVE WITH THE QUEEN’S Cousin?
All these may be described as “little flirtations”, but there is another claim about Prince Philip: That he had an affair with Queen Elizabeth II’s cousin, Princess Alexandra of Kent. It was even said that this relationship lasted for 20 years. But this relationship has never been proven.
ALLEGED TO ESCAPE WITH THE PLAYER
There were some allegations that the Queen was cheated on during her marriage, and there were even some women involved in such relationships. One of them is actor Pat Kirkwood. It has been claimed that Prince Philip cheated on his wife Elizabeth with Pat Kirkwood when she was pregnant with their first baby, Charles. But Kirkwood denied all these allegations.
NONE PROVIDED: It has been suggested that Prince Philip cheated on Elizabeth several times during the late 1950s and 1960s. Alongside actress Pat Kirkwood, one of those named Philip was TV star Katie Boyle. According to another claim, an unknown woman accompanied Philip on his cruise on the royal yacht Britannia. But none of this has been proven.
‘MEN ARE LIKE’
Prince Philip, who became the Duke of Edinburgh after marrying Elizabeth, had multiple relationships during his marriage, as biographer Sarah Bradford argues in her 2011 book Elizabeth II: Her Life in Our Times. Bradford had another claim in his book: The Queen would not speak up. I think he thought all men were like that.
‘MY FIRST, SECOND AND FINAL MISSION…’
Meanwhile, Prince Philip had said in response to rumors of cheating about him that “My first, second and last duty is to never disappoint the Queen.”
HOW DID THEY MEET? So how did Elizabeth and Philip, who came from the royal families of Greece and Denmark, meet? Elizabeth and Philip, who had been married for 74 years, met for the first time at the 1934 wedding of Philip’s cousin, Princess Marina, to Prince George, Duke of Kent. But then Elizabeth was only 8 years old and Philip was 13 years old.
FACE RED FROM EXCITEMENT
Years passed and they met again in 1939. It was in that encounter that Elizabeth was swept off her feet. The handsomeness of the young man in front of him really impressed him. In fact, Elizabeth blushed with excitement when she saw Philip, as her nanny Marion Crawford later wrote in her memoir.
MARRIED IN 1947
Of course, his nanny Crawford wasn’t the only one who noticed this shot. Philip’s uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, also noticed the interest in the two young people. This encounter took place shortly before the Second World War. Then Philip served in fleets in the Pacific and Mediterranean during the war. The two young people continued to correspond. Philip returned safely from the war, and Elizabeth’s father, who was a princess at the time, asked King George VI for permission to propose to her. On July 9, 1947, the engagement was announced. They got married on November 20, without much ado.
Elizabeth and Philip remained together until death separated them. They had four children from this marriage. Thanks to their long lives, they also had the opportunity to see their grandchildren and even great-grandchildren.
