The pack will be launched tomorrow – exactly 60 days to the Queen’s 60th Jubilee anniversary. The cards also name David Cameron as the Queen's favourite PM and Chelsea as her favourite football club.

The firm is also launching an app, which will be available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch towards the end of April.

The top card of the 30 in the pack is Prince Phillip and the bottom one is the Queen’s bank.

The bank – Coutts – gets a high rating in the age category (320) but a zero in two of the other four sections.

“Blue is the Queen’s colour because it’s her local team – the nearest club to Buckingham Palace,” explained a spokesperson for Top Trumps makers Winning Moves UK.

The pack names Her Majesty’s favourite:

Corgi – Susan, given to her as an 18th birthday present by her mum and dad, King George V1 and The Queen Mother.

Royal - Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge for her PR shot in the Royal Family’s arm.

Prime Minister - David Cameron.

Corner Shop – Harrods. It says on this card the luxury store is somewhere the Queen can despatch “her butler to if she runs out of milk on a Sunday morning”.

Bank - Coutts.

Outfit – a pink number, designed by Stewart Parvin who has designed some of her most stylish outfits including for Royal Ascot and meeting the Obamas.

Couple - King George V1 and the Queen Mother, her beloved mum and dad.

TV show - Coronation Street, of course. A renowned must-see at Buckingham Palace.

The pack is being released worldwide from tomorrow and comes exactly a year after a Royal Wedding pack in which Kate Middleton boldly, and in the US at the time very controversially, trumped Princess Diana in the fashion stakes.

The five ranking categories in the cards whereby players can trump their opponent player are: Age; Magic Moment; Pomp and Ceremony; Off Duty; Queentessential.

The Winning Moves spokesperson added: “We have studied just about every word ever printed about the Queen – and every body language – and we feel this pack is definitive. It has taken a dedicated team a wonderful fulfilling age putting it all together. We are absolutely delighted with it.”

Top Trumps The Diamond Jubilee app – available towards the end of April from the Apple App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
