On Sunday, the Queen marked 70 years since her accession to the throne. She is the first British ruler to celebrate this milestone. The day before the celebrations, the monarch told the nation: “I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me.”
She spoke about the possibility of Prince Charles becoming King and 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”.
She added: “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.”
However, there was a considerable amount of outrage online when it came to light that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had not congratulated the Queen on her accession day.
Twitter user George Grant, who calls himself a “millennial monarchist”, told his 4,700 followers: “Silent Sussexes: The silence from the Sussexes on Queen’s accession day is deafening.

“Any noise from Cambridges or Sussexes would have taken the light on her away.”
Twitter user Toria replied and said: “That’s an interesting idea.
“Maybe the congrats and celebrations will come in June.
