As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to tie the know next week, a couple who recently celebrated their diamond anniversary have shared their words of wisdom.

Barbara and Robert Nicholls say the secret to a long, happy marriage is simply talking to one another.

The couple, who have been married for 60 years after meeting at Odham’s Printing, say they’ve always worked as a team and considered one another’s feelings.

Mrs Nicholls, who lives at Bupa Brunswick Court, in Watford, is visited most days by her doting husband Robert.

The pair celebrated their diamond wedding anniversary in March this year, with a get together at the home, organised by activities coordinator Vicki West, and senior care assistant Emma Impey.

Emma said: “It’s so lovely seeing the two of them together. They are still so gentle and loving with each other, and even though they can nolonger live together, we make every effort to make sure they are still spending as much time together as possible.

“We love having Robert to visit and Barbara is always happier when he is around.”
