“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.”
In a hugely significant intervention shaping the future of the monarchy, the monarch also expressed her “sincere wish” that Camilla will be known as Queen Consort when Prince Charles becomes King.
A photo of the Queen working from her red boxes was also released to mark the historic milestone.
On the eve of her Platinum Jubilee, the 95-year-old monarch stepped out for her biggest in-person engagement since spending a night in hospital last autumn.
