Bells ring out at abbey where Queen and Duke wed 70 years ago

Bells rang out at the historic abbey where the Queen married the Duke of Edinburgh, 70 years to the day that the royal couple said their vows.

On their platinum wedding anniversary, a full celebratory peal sounded from Westminster Abbey, where the 21-year-old future monarch Princess Elizabeth walked up the aisle to marry her dashing Greek and Danish prince in 1947.

Today, the Abbey's Company of Ringers performed a complicated arrangement.

It took the team of 10 ringers around three hours and 20 minutes to complete, as they deliver the tribute without a break.
