In this message, the Queen confirmed what has long been speculated, that Camilla will become Queen Consort when Prince Charles becomes King.
On the 70th anniversary, the official Royal Family Twitter shared a gorgeous image of Queen Elizabeth on the day of her accession.
Today marks 70 years since Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne, following the death of her father, King George VI.
Her Majesty was proclaimed Queen throughout the UK and Commonwealth in the early hours of 6 February 1952.
