Punjabi couple married for 87 years invited to tea at Palace

A Punjabi couple from Bradford, who have been married for an astonishing 87 years, have attended a royal garden party at Buckingham Palace.

Karam Chand, 107 and his wife Kartari, 100, were hosted by the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge.

The couple married in 1925 in rural Punjab when Mr Chand was 20 and his bride 13.  The Chand's moved to Bradford in 1965 and have eight children, 27 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren.  

Speaking before the Palace party, Mr and Mrs Chand's son Paul said his parents were thrilled to have been invited.

He said: "It's very difficult to explain how exciting this moment is.

"The secret of marriage is that it's give and take.

"I've never seen my mum and dad argue, whatever one says the other accepts."

Mr and Mrs Chand were invited to the garden party in recognition of the length of their marriage.

Among the guests at the garden party were Olympians, Paralympians and London 2012 officials, including swimmer Rebecca Adlington and Helen Glover, the rower who won Team GB's first gold medal at the games.
