On Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II marked 70 years on the throne where she said it is her wish for Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall to be Queen when her son Prince Charles takes the throne.

The queen praised her daughter-in-law’s “loyal service” and recently appointed Camilla as a Royal Lady of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, the oldest and most senior order of chivalry, for her “service to the sovereign.”

“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. It is a role I saw my own mother perform during my father’s reign,” she wrote in a letter to The Nation.

Prince Charles and Camilla were both divorcées when they married in a civil ceremony in 2005. At the time, the royal family issued a statement saying that Camilla would be known as “Princess Consort” if her husband became king.

Camila was Princess Consort out of respect of prince Charles’s late first wife, Princess Diana.
