Lord Mountbatten family tree: How was Louis Mountbatten related to the Queen and Charles? | Royal | News (Reports)


He was father to two daughters: Patricia Knatchbull, later 2nd Countess Mountbatten of Burma, and Lady Pamela Hicks.

Prince Philip and Princess Elizabeth first met at the 1934 wedding of Princess Marina of Greece and Denmark and Prince George, Duke of Kent.

Philip and Elizabeth would meet again in 1939, while King George VI toured the grounds of the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, where Philip was attending at the time.

It is thought the Queen Mother and Lord Mountbatten asked Philip to escort Princess Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret during the visit.

The pair went on to exchange letters, and would eventually formally become engaged in 1947.
