Britannia Royal Naval College
Back to where it all began…a young Princess Elizabeth met Prince Philip for the very first time at the Royal Britannia Naval College, way back in back 1939.
“They first met at Britannia Royal Naval College in 1939, where an 18-year-old cadet Philip was introduced to a 13-year-old Princess Elizabeth of England while she was touring the grounds. From then, it’s said, the young royal never thought of anybody else. The two began to exchange letters throughout the war years. Upon his return from the Pacific theater in 1946, his relationship with Queen Elizabeth blossomed. It’s presumed that he proposed that June, on the grounds of Balmoral.”
