The Queen was named Elizabeth the Great by Boris Johnson ahead of this week’s Jubilee celebrations.
In a message released last night, the Prime Minister said: “No monarch has ever served the country so long and, more importantly, no monarch has ever served it so well.
“Simply unique, she embodies the idea of a constitutional monarchy.”
And the Prime Minister is paying tribute to the Queen’s 70 years of service, advising more than 170 heads of government and undertaking 21,000 official engagements.
Mr Johnson ended his praise with a flourish of Latin.
He said, “On behalf of the whole nation, Vivat Regina Elizabetha! God save Queen Elizabeth.”
Mr Johnson also spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy yesterday to discuss the latest developments in the war.
The two leaders agreed to “find ways to resume grain exports from Ukraine to avert a global food crisis.”
