A letter written by the late Queen Elizabeth II that lies hidden in a vault in Australia may not be opened for another 63 years.

Her Majesty’s note was written for the people of Sydney and is kept secret in one of the city’s historic Queen Victoria buildings.

The letter has been located in the building for almost 36 years when the Queen wrote the note in November 1986 on a state visit.

Apparently not even the Queen’s personal staff knows what was written on the note, apart from the strict instructions on the front stating when it must be opened.

The letter signed by the Queen is addressed to the Right Honorable Lord Mayor of Sydney, Australia.

He says: “Greetings. On a suitable day to be selected by you in the year 2085 AD, please open this envelope and convey to the citizens of SYDNEY my message to them.”

The building first opened in 1898 and was named in honor of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee.

The British monarchy remains the head of state in Australia, with King Charles represented in the country by Dave Hurley, the country’s Governor General.

The late Queen as head of state could have been abolished in 1999, when the country held a referendum to decide whether to become a republic.

Voters opted against the change with 54 per cent of the population stating that they would like the Queen to remain their head of state.
