The Palace announced: “The sheer amount of work she did as Queen, from her early, lengthy Commonwealth tours to the numerous official engagements she attended well into her later years, served as an example of her commitment to a life of service that became a guiding principle throughout her reign.

“I have watched you grow up all these years, with pride… and I can, I know, always count on you, and now Philip, to help in our work,” King George VI wrote in a letter to Princess Elizabeth shortly after her wedding, expressing his confidence in her dedication to her royal duties.
