Elizabeth and Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark, are second cousins once removed through King Christian IX of Denmark in addition to being third cousins through Queen Victoria. It was while crossing paths at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in July 1939, that young Elizabeth (only 13 years old at the time) fell head over heels in love with Philip.

The feeling was mutual and the two began exchanging love letters until July 9, 1947, when they officially announced their engagement. Elizabeth and Philip were married on 20 November 1947 at Westminster Abbey. They went on to have four children: Charles, Prince of Wales; Anne, Princess Royal; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex.
