    They married for love. The Queen's parents wanted her to date other men, but Elizabeth had set her sights on Philip and the couple had been corresponding for years as well as meeting when he was in town.

    It was definitely love for Princess Elizabeth and it was for the love of money for Lt Philip Mountbatten.

    They married for love, elizabeth met philip in 1939 when he was 18 and she was 13, it is said that after meeting philip she never looked at another man, they wrote to each other all through the second world war and they married in 1947.

    She had the hots for him and still does , lol ... and it just so happened, it worked out conveniently, as Prince Philip was a prime candidate to produce the appropriate offspring with QE2- Both from the ancient German Saxe-Corburg-Gotha royal bloodline.

    They married because she was expecting Charles!

    • If so, it was the longest pregnancy in the history of mankind as Elizabeth & Philip were married in Nov. 1947 & Charles was born in Nov. 1948.

    It was definitely for love, although, there is speculation that his uncle Louis would have tried to arrange the match if he could have. 

    While he (Philip) was at Dartmouth, during a visit from the Royal family when she was 13, he reportedly followed them as far as he could down the river on departure. It’s also reported that she knew she was in love with him at that time.
