The Queen and Prince Philip have officially been married for 73 years.

And it appears the Queen’s jewellery is as long-lasting as her marriage, with the couple posing in adorable portraits with a familiar detail.

In the photos taken at Windsor Castle, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh can be seen looking at a homemade card given to them by their great-grandchildren, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Looking regal in a powder blue dress and pearls, the Queen can also be seen wearing one of the oldest pieces from hew jewellery vault – the sapphire chrysanthemum brooch.

She was also seen wearing it in official honeymoon photos taken five days after her November 1947 nuptials with Prince Philip.

The pair posed in beautiful black and white portraits at Broadlands Estate, Hampshire, when the royal was still known as Princess Elizabeth.

They recreated the honeymoon photos at Broadlands for their 60th anniversary in 2007, with the Queen wearing the brooch yet again.

The brooch features diamond petals and a sapphire centre to form a chrysanthemum design.

The Queen has a fabulously extensive jewellery collection. The Crown Jewels, which she inherited when she was crowned in 1953, are said to be worth about $A6.4 billion alone.

They are a collection of royal ceremonial objects kept in the Tower of London, which include the regalia and vestments worn at coronations.

Tiaras from the Queen’s personal collection have been loaned down the line over the years, with Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wearing a Cartier Halo tiara for her 2011 wedding to Prince William, valued at $A2.2 million.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex wore a bandeau diamond tiara worth $A3.64 million for her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry.

But Princess Eugenie’s wedding tiara was the most expensive by a long shot, with the Queen’s granddaughter wearing a Greville Emerald Kokoshnik Boucheron tiara created in 1919, for her 2018 wedding to Jack Brooksbank.

It is reportedly worth up to $A22 million.
