Queen Elizabeth's Milestone

Today is the day that Queen Elizabeth II reaches a milestone and becomes the longest reigning monarch in British history. She has exceeded the record set by her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria, who reigned for 63 years, 7 months and 2 days. That's a long time! There have been only four other British queens or kings who have reigned 50 years or more.

Over the years that I've been living here in England, I've seen Queen Elizabeth twice along with some of the other royals. I've seen her from afar each time, once at Trooping the Colour and the other time was during the royal wedding of William and Kate. I took some photos that turned out kinda blurry, but you can tell that it's her, so I'll share them anyway :)

The photo below is from Trooping the Colour

And the photos below are from the Royal Wedding

Just wanted to share a bit of my experience in regards to Queen Elizabeth.

Have a great day wherever you are! :)
