In America, our most adored and adulated couples don't tend to stand the test of time. From Liz and Richard Burton to "Brangelina," the watchful eye of the public has proven too much for famous couples to handle time and time again. Across the pond, however, lives a couple whose relationship has withstood unrelenting inspection, the disapproval of some of the most powerful people in the world, and the early ascension of a queen. Obviously, that couple is Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, whose love has endured for more than 70 years. Over such a long period of time, every marriage becomes a rollercoaster, but it's particularly twisty and turny in the royal family.

Not Ideal Circumstances

The tale of how the future Queen and Prince got together could have come straight from a Hollywood movie. Of course, both Elizabeth and Philip being royals, their paths crossed a few times, but not exactly under the best of circumstances. When they first met, Philip's life was in complete shambles. His father had left the family to live with his mistress in Monte Carlo, his mother was staying in a psychiatric hospital, and he was due to get shipped off to whichever boarding school his relatives deemed best. Thankfully, those difficult beginnings didn't soil their first meeting and end young love before it started.
