February 6 marks the Anniversary of The Queen’s Jubilee.  

This year Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 70th year in reign, being the first British Monach to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee. 

Whilst she is having a private affair at her Sandringham Estate, The Queen has also been reflecting on the past and planning the future of her Monarchy. She wrote a letter to the nation on February 5, addressing her thoughts.

After the death of her beloved husband, Prince Phillip, last year the Queen takes time to honour him saying in 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.’

The realness of time is how many have taken the Queen’s letter. After losing her husband, Queen Elizabeth notices may have noticed that her future on the throne may not be forever. 

Though, whilst now she remains positive and with hope, on February 5 she announced that The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla will become Queen Consort. 

In her letter to the nation she wrote: “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.” 

 

The address from Her Majesty feels like a wholesome piece of news for readers, amis a lot of power conflict. She said: “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 Queen also thanked the nation for their ongoing support and loyalty to her, expressing that she feels ‘humbled’ and with confidence for the future. 

 

Today the Queen will have a quiet celebration of her reign, renewing her promise of public duty she originally made in 1947 by, ‘my life will always be devoted to your service’. 

And, in a noble fashion The Queen signed her letter: “Your servant Elizabeth R”.
