Their posts were shared ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee announcement yesterday in which she said it was her ‘sincere wish’ that Camilla be known as Queen Consort when Prince Charles takes the throne.
In a message, the Queen said: ‘It is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort.’ 
The ‘Queen Consort’ refers to the spouse of a ruling king. A spokesman for Clarence House said both the Charles and Camilla were ‘touched and honoured’.
