BRITIAN'S Prince William says his grandmother Queen Elizabeth is an ''incredible role model''.

The 29-year-old prince paid tribute to the monarch as he selected a photograph from his 2006 passing out ceremony at the Sandhurst military academy to be uploaded onto website Historypin, which is aiming to become the world's largest interactive gallery of the queen.

He said: ''Taking part in the Sovereign's Parade at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst is a moment I will never forget. After a very demanding 44-week course, it was a memorable celebration of personal and collective achievement for everyone concerned.

''I felt especially proud to receive my commission as an officer in front of my grandmother, the queen. She has been an incredible role model to me over the years, so it was very special to have her present for my graduation. I know it was also a memorable moment for my fellow officers to take part in the Parade in front of the queen as Head of the Armed Forces.''

William also praised the queen - who celebrates her Diamond Jubilee next month - for her sense of ''selflessness and duty''.

He added: ''I remember the queen's words as she addressed us from the tremendous parade ground at Sandhurst, 'You must be courageous yet selfless, leaders yet carers, confident yet considerate.' These qualities of selflessness and duty are values that the queen has continuously demonstrated over the last 60 years and are qualities that remain very important to me."
