Following a rousing week of garden parties, Queen Elizabeth celebrated a record-breaking milestone.
Yesterday, the 93-year-old queen celebrated the 66th anniversary of her coronation and the 67th anniversary of her reign as sovereign of the British Commonwealth.
That’s a long time, right? Well, Her Majesty actually became the longest-reigning British monarch in history in 2017 when she surpassed a record previously held by Queen Victoria who ruled for 63 years from 1837 to 1901. Now she’s the longest-running state leader in the history of the world. So it’s not only a super long time, it’s a record-breaking accomplishment.
To commemorate the occasion, the royal family shared a throwback photo on Instagram of the queen and her family on coronation day.
