"For Prince Philip and me, there can be no greater pleasure or comfort than to know that into his care are safely-entrusted the guiding principles of public service and duty to others," the quote read.

The caption added: "His Majesty The King has spent his working life serving the public through his patronages, with a particular focus on environmental causes and young people. "His many duties in support of The Queen have included representing Her Majesty and the UK overseas, attending events including State Visits to the UK, the State Opening of Parliament and Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings."

The Queen passed away in Balmoral on Thursday

The Queen spoke these words on her 21st birthday, knowing that one day she would succeed her father King George VI as Monarch.

The Palace stated: "Her commitment to a life of service became a guiding principle throughout her reign and was illustrated in the sheer volume of work which she undertook as Queen - from her early Commonwealth tours which lasted for several months at a time, to the many official engagements which she attended well into her final years.

"In a letter written by King George VI to Princess Elizabeth shortly after her wedding, King George VI wrote of his confidence in her commitment to her Royal duties, saying: '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.'"
