Fans were, however, excited, as one penned: "If it is the wish of The Queen that Camilla be known as Queen, then that is how she should be known," and another added: "I have so much admiration for that amazing lady. And I’m so happy for what she wrote about Charles and Camilla."

In the speech, Her Majesty said: "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."
