Bells ring out for big day
BELLS will ring out at the historic church where the Queen married the Duke of Edinburgh, 70 years to the day since the couple said their vows.
A full peal will sound from Westminster Abbey, where the 21-year-old Princess Elizabeth walked up the aisle to marry her dashing Greek and Danish prince in 1947.
At 1pm on Monday, the abbey’s ringers will begin a complicated peal consisting of 5,070 changes or sequences, with the 70 a nod to the anniversary. It will take the ringers around three hours and 20 minutes to complete.
It is a historic tradition that the Abbey bells are rung for significant royal occasions and anniversaries.
