    Default The Queen reaches another milestone: 2/3 of a century on the throne




    Well done, another milestone passed.

    She will be 93 next April and the Duke will be 98 next June.

    If she is still reigning on –


    • 18 July 2020 (at age 94 years, 88 days), she will have been queen for 25,000 days.
    • 6 February 2022 (at age 95 years, 291 days), she will celebrate her platinum jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne.
    • 27 May 2024 (at age 98 years, 36 days), she will surpass King Louis XIV of France as the longest-reigning monarch of a major European country.


    Her mother, the Queen Mother, lived to 101 (d. 2002) and her aunt, Princess Alice, lived to 102 (d. 2004)

    I seriously think that the royal family have some sort of a magical potion that just keeps you alive as long as you don't get poisoned or killed!

    To put it into context - she's been reigning while America has had 13 Presidents!

    What a strange irony it'll be that how shocked we'll all be when she (an old lady) is no longer with us.

    But for now, long may she reign.

    @Neversoft;

    I have a similar pose (portrait) framed, pride of place, in my bedroom back home.
