Description

Elizabeth first met Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark in 1934, at the wedding of Philip's cousin Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark to Prince George, Duke of Kent, paternal uncle of Elizabeth. They met again in 1937. After another meeting at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in July 1939, Elizabeth—though only 13 years old—fell in love with Philip and they began to exchange letters. An entry in Chips Channon's diary made reference to the future marriage of Elizabeth and Philip as early as 1941, "He is to be our Prince Consort, and that is why he is serving in our Navy." The couple became secretly engaged in 1946, when Philip asked King George VI for his daughter's hand in marriage. The King granted his request providing any formal engagement was delayed until Elizabeth's 21st birthday the following April. Their engagement was officially announced on 9 July 1947. Elizabeth, then still a Princess, married Philip Duke of Edinburgh at Westminster Abbey at 11:30 GMT on 20 November 1947. Please join Steiff in congratulating the Royal couple for seventy years of marriage, a truly platinum achievement. Celebrate this great occasion with our stunning commemorative bear.

The Steiff promise of quality

For children only the best will do!

When we say “For children only the best will do”, they are not just empty words but rather a guiding principle that has been followed for generations: Children are our present and our future. All cuddly toys that we produce and sell must therefore do more than justice to the absolute highest of standards in terms of quality, safety, processing and material attributes. We place this benchmark above all of the prescribed international checks and tests. The Steiff purity standard is a permanent fixture of Steiff's corporate philosophy and a foundation of the trust that customers place in us, and one that grows year upon year: This is marked by the Steiff seal.
