Prince Philip continued to don the shoes he wore for his wedding for the rest of his life, it has been reported.

The Duke of Edinburgh married Queen Elizabeth on November 20, 1947.

For the next seven decades he continued to wear the same black leather shoes he slipped on that day to formal events, MailOnline reports.

The 70 year long relationship Philip maintained with the shoes was revealed by the Confederation of British Industry president Lord Karan Bilimoria.

“He told me once that he was wearing the shoes from the day that he got married,” he said.

“We were next to each other and tying up our laces when he told me that those were the same shoes from his wedding day. It was amazing.”

The touching tribute was made the day before Philip’s funeral.

The duke will be interred at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in a ceremony which begins at 3pm tomorrow which will be broadcast live.

This evening an Order of Service for the funeral was published which shows a string of musical pieces with deep personal connections to the royal.

Music chosen by Philip, who served in the navy, includes the hymn Eternal Father, Strong to Save – traditionally associated with seafarers and the maritime armed services.
