On the Royal Family official Instagram account, her personal message reads, 'I send my warmest congratulations to the competitors from Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and across the Commonwealth, following their success at the Olympic Games in Tokyo in recent weeks.
'The skill, determination, and hard work shown by the athletes and their support teams throughout the unique and challenging circumstances of the last year has been an inspiration to us all.
'I extend my very best wishes to everyone who has played a part in this extraordinary achievement. Elizabeth R.'

One fan wrote, 'The Queen speaks on behalf of all of us. Well done Team GB❤️'
Another fan put, 'They all did amazingly! Bring on Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games!'
And a third and fourth supporter added, 'Well said' and 'Hear hear' respectively.

And the Queen has proven she is only human - having suffered some losses of her own. Not only did she mourn the death of her husband Prince Philip (opens in new tab) but she lost two of her beloved dogs (opens in new tab) when it was revealed they had died.
