Manage episode 294066896 series 2934811
Queen Elizabeth’s marriage of 73 years to Prince Philip was certainly one for the books, but their wildly public love story wasn’t all smiles. Early in the relationship, Prince Philip had to come to grips that the woman he married would become one of the most influential people in the world, which she would have to project as no big deal. Around their 50th wedding anniversary, Philip gave a rare speech about his marriage where he said tolerance is the one essential ingredient in any happy marriage. He added that during their marriage, the queen gave him “tolerance in abundance.”
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s marriage shows us what commitment-based marriage is all about. The Duke knew his duty was to always be there for the queen, which he did for 73 years. In this podcast episode, Julius Young and Kimberly Holmes take a deep dive into what is really necessary to make a relationship last in a situation where one spouse may be feeling overshadowed by another spouse in the spotlight.
