QUEEN ELIZABETH II - LONGEST REIGNING UK MONARCH
WEDNESDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER 2015
Today Queen Elizabeth became the longest reigning UK Monarch, surpassing her great Grandmother Queen Victoria.
The Queen will have reigned for 63 years and seven months - calculated at 23,226 days, 16 hours and approximately 30 minutes at about 17:30 BST.
Today marks the 23,226 of her reign. The Queen is determined that it should in no way be exceptional.
She has let it be known with some emphasis that she does not want a fuss to be made.
She may not want there to be a fuss but it would seem that a good number of British citizens, to say nothing of those from further afield, believe that her record-breaking reign deserves a little recognition.
