Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip are marking their 73rd wedding anniversary with a gift from the next generation of royals, their great-grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Buckingham Palace released a new photo Thursday showing the queen and Philip looking at an anniversary card made by 7-year-old George, 5-year-old Charlotte and 2-year-old Louis, the children of Prince William and Duchess Kate.

The photo was taken in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle earlier this week, according to Buckingham Palace.

Prince William and Kate shared a closer look at the card their children made for Queen Elizabeth and Philip in an Instagram post in which they wished the couple a "very happy wedding anniversary."

Queen Elizabeth, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, were married on Nov. 20, 1947, in Westminster Abbey in London.

Queen Elizabeth was a princess and the heir to the British throne at the time of her wedding to Philip, born Prince Philip of Greek and Denmark. The couple went on to have four children and now have eight grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

The queen and Philip, who retired from official royal duties in 2017, were last seen together in an official photograph released by Buckingham Palace in June to mark Philip's 99th birthday.
