Next month, Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and the Duke of Edinburgh will celebrate a remarkable milestone: their 70th wedding anniversary! Today, I've got a fun look at the display of their wedding gifts from the autumn of 1947 -- in motion!





Jewels displayed here include the Nizam of Hyderabad Tiara, the Nizam of Hyderabad Necklace, the Swiss Federal Watch, and the City of London Fringe Necklace





This display features the Queen Anne and Queen Caroline Pearl Necklaces, the Greville Ruby Necklace, and the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara




This display includes the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, one of Queen Mary's Indian Bangles, Queen Mary's Diamond Stomacher, and the Dorset Bow Brooch
