Today, the Queen becomes the longest reigning monarch taking the record off Queen Victoria. At about 17:30, she will have reigned for 23,226 days, 16 hours and approximately 30 minutes aka 63 years and seven months.

Let's celebrate this historic occassion:

Woo! Well done Liz.

She's had a pretty great reign, a very unusual life, all in service of this country and I've been hoping she'd break the record for a while. Erm... Long live the Queen and all that. (saying that has made me realise we'll have to wait to say 'The King is dead! Long live the King' until Charles pops it sad.gif )

Was at Buckingham Palace a couple of weeks ago and the gift shop already had 'Longest Reigning Monarch' items for sale so well done Liz on not popping off during that time. cheer.gif

Yes, I've noticed a few stuff like that. It would have been a bit awkward haha...

G'won Elizabeth *.* It's always great to be alive when records that will go down in history are happening right in front of us. My curry down the pub tonight is officially dedicated to her tbh, what an honour.

Fabulous life-span and reign thus far.

GO LIZ

I'm quite interested to see HOW FAR she can go now. Not that thoughts of R LIZ carking it are very seemly, but I do hope it doesn't occur for quite some time (not least because it means even LESS time with Charles as King).

I remember about 8 years ago researching when she'd make the milestone and thinking 2015 sounded so futuristic and miles away.

I hope she can make her 70th year on the throne in 2022. She's still got a way to go to beat the global record for longest reign which is held by Sobhuza II (82 years, 254 days) and currently sits at #48 in that list today after finally passing Queen Victoria.

She won't beat the global record as she'd have to live to 108!

Oh yes I vaguely knew this time was coming up! Well done Lizzy for avoiding death for this long. It is going to feel odd when she's not around any more though in all seriousness, as much as I don't really care for the royal family.

Thailand still has us beat for longest reigning current monarch unforch.

Fab news for Queen Lizzie! I agree though, the less time with Charles, the better.

I'm still disappointed we don't have hoverboards yet!!

In all seriousness what is the point of a monarch in 2015?
