The Queen's job description has been re-worded following the Platinum Jubilee, which saw her miss a number of engagements due to mobility issues.

The 96-year-old's 'official duties' now are now far broader, and she has less responsibility as Head of State and Head of Nation.

Other members of the royal family may also undertake official duties on her behalf.
