Queen Elizabeth left her late husband, Prince Philip of 73 years, a hand-written letter on his coffin.
The note was left visible alongside a wreath, Elle reported.
Writing letters to one another was something the couple was known to do throughout their marriage. In a note pinned to author Betty Shew in 1947, the then 21-year-old queen shared the details of the first time she met her soon-to-be husband Philip.
“Philip enjoys driving and does it fast! He has his own tiny M.G., which he is very proud of—he has taken me about in it, once up to London, which was great fun, only it was like sitting on the road, and the wheels are almost as high as one’s head. On that one and only occasion, we were chased by a photographer, which was disappointing,” she reportedly wrote.
The queen and her husband met at a wedding when she was only 8. The two reconnected when she was 13 and he was 18. From there, they began exchanging letters, and in 1946, Philip proposed.
