Mrs Turner told the News: “He really enjoyed the life and I enjoyed living and working in London.”

The couple were planning to have a family gathering to mark the anniversary on 2 April, but this was shelved due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The 85-year-old added: “We’ll be fine – we shall have a drink and make the best of it.”
