The Queen, who was recently caught blasting ‘irritating world leaders,’ has revealed what Camilla’s new title will be when her son, Prince Charles, becomes King.
The 95-year-old confirmed the news in a statement shared to mark her Platinum Jubilee.
It reads: “And when, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”

It began by saying: “Tomorrow, 6th February, marks the 70th anniversary of my Accession in 1952. It is a day that, even after 70 years, I still remember as much for the death of my father, King George VI, as for the start of my reign.
“As we mark this anniversary, it gives me pleasure to renew to you the pledge I gave in 1947 that my life will always be devoted to your service.
“As I look ahead with a sense of hope and optimism to the year of my Platinum Jubilee, I am reminded of how much we can be thankful for.”
The Monarch then spoke of the ‘extraordinary progress’ socially, technologically and culturally she has seen over her reign, before adding: “I was blessed that in Prince Philip I had a partner willing to carry out the role of consort and unselfishly make the sacrifices that go with it.”
Following the statement, Prince Charles, who is first in line to the throne, commented: “On this historic day, my wife and I join you all in congratulating Her Majesty the Queen on the remarkable achievement of serving this nation, the realms and Commonwealth for 70 years.”
He added the couple were ‘deeply conscious of the honour represented by his mother’s wish,’ before saying his ‘darling wife’ has been a ‘steadfast support’ to him while carrying out his Royal duties.
