"I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and affection that you continue to give me," Queen Elizabeth announced during her Accession Day statement on February 6.

Although some of the royal family may be unhappy with the current King and Queen's titles, an OK! exclusive insider previously revealed this monarchy won't reign for long.

“Her Majesty isn’t certain her family is up to the job of guiding Britain for the next 100 years,” dished a high-ranking royal aide, who explained Prince William and Kate would take over the throne following King Charles' 80th birthday.

Radar reported Kate and Camilla duking it out for the position of Queen Consort prior to Queen Elizabeth’s death.
