A Huge Sacrifice Prince Philip's Mom Made For Her Son's Happy Marriage With Queen Elizabeth's

CHAPTER 1: THE MINDBLOWING WEDDING RING AND THE TOUCHING STORY BEHIND IT

Prince Philip happened to be head over heels for the then Princess Elizabeth, and he wanted to show off his love for her with a rare engagement ring. However, as a naval cadet, and a modest man with limited resources, how was he to achieve that? He was born a Greece Prince and had to move from one place to another with his mother and siblings for part of his life after the outbreak of the war and suffering abandonment from his soldier father. His shot at love was too good to lose, and so he thought of the best possible way to impress the heir to the British Throne.

According to Town & Country, the Prince asked his mother to help him out. Just like every mother, she shared an invaluable bond with her son and was substantially fulfilled with his happiness. Princess Alice of Battenberg gave her son her crown which she received from Tsar Nicholas II and Tsarina Alexander of Russia as her wedding gift, for it to be dismantled and its diamonds used for Elizabeth’s ring.
