In honor of Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d have a short-and-sweet post about my favorite couples, whether they be real or imagined! One thing I will refrain from, though, is discussing the many “favorite” couples I am lucky to know in my personal life.
So, here’s the list:
Queen Elizabeth II & Prince Philip
“He is someone who doesn’t take easily to compliments. But he has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I and his whole family, in this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim or we shall ever know.” – Her Majesty on her husband, Prince Philip.
“…because of ‘great impatience tempered by patience. When you have been together this long, sometimes you drive each other nuts, but underneath that is some core of affection and respect.” – Paul Newman on how his marriage lasted.
John F. Kennedy Jr. & Carolyn Bessette Kennedy
Prince Frederik & Crown Princess Mary
“My favorite poem is by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, “How Do I Love Thee,” which has always been something special for me. And it’s something I have from my father. It is also his favorite poem. It’s just so beautiful and it’s about love. The last line says: …’if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death’.” – Crown Princess Mary on sending poetry to her then-boyfriend Prince Frederik.
Mitt Romney & Ann Davies Romney
Jesse & Celine
“I am giving you my whole life, ok?”
(Full Disclosure: I also kind of hate Fitzwilliam Darcy.)
I hope everyone had a very happy Valentine’s Day!
