All long-time sweethearts are being asked to share their love stories in honour of a royal platinum anniversary.

The Queen will be celebrating her 70th wedding anniversary to the Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh on November 20.

To celebrate this regal affair, the Mayor of Hertsmere wants to hear about long-lasting love stories from the area.

The Mayor’s Office believe that a marriage that has been going since 1947 is something that deserves recognition and a visit from the civic head of the borough.

To nominate a couple or for more information call 020 8207 7477, email or write to the Mayor’s secretary Lisa Wells, at Hertsmere Borough Council Civic Offices, Elstree Way, Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, WD6 1WA.
