Wedding of Princess Elizabeth and Philip Mountbatten on 20 November 1947 at Westminster Abbey

Their engagement was officially announced on 9 July 1947. Philip proposed to Elizabeth with a 3-carat round diamond ring consisting of “a center stone flanked by 10 smaller pave diamonds.” The diamonds were taken from a tiara that belonged to Philip’s mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg, and were also used to create a bracelet for Elizabeth.
