Regina Cæli

Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.
Pius XII -- Munificentissimus Deus

As part of the infallible declaration that the Virgin Mary was assumed into Heaven, Pope Pius XII also defined that she was crowned Queen of the Universe.

Thus, as with Our Lord, who is at once our Lord and our brother, she is our tender and loving Mother, and our Glorious and Honourable Queen.
