What kind of anniversary gift does one give to a Prince? If you're the Queen of England, a knighthood. In honor of their platinum anniversary, Queen Elizabeth has made her husband, Prince Philip, a knight.

According to People, Philip was awarded the Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, an honor "given by the monarch to recognize distinguished personal service to her."

The palace shared the news via Twitter on Monday, adding that "awards in the Royal Victorian Order are made personally by The Queen, for services to the Sovereign."


Upon his marriage to then-Princess Elizabeth in November of 1947, Philip was given the Dukedom of Edinburgh. And just a decade later, in 1957, Elizabeth made Philip a British Prince, a scene we are likely to see in the upcoming season of The Crown.

Now the only question is, what did Prince Philip get the Queen to celebrate the milestone?
