Netflix series 'The Crown' has given some titillating insight into the British royal family. While some of its story lines may be fiction, some are very firmly based on facts.
The one thing the series has so eloquently delved into is the relationship between Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip. While the couple celebrated their 72nd wedding anniversary last week, claims have now come to light that the Duke of Edinburgh didn't always have his heart set on marrying a young Elizabeth.
According to The Express, the queen is believed to have set her eyes on Philip from a very young age – many accounts believe as young as 13. But theirs was not a romance based on love at first sight.
