Queen Elizabeth II

The Queen of England has become the second-longest serving monarch in history.

As of today, June 13, she will be on the throne for 70 years and 127 days, second only to Louis XIV of France who became king at the age of four.

The Queen overtakes Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died in 2016, having equalled his reign on Sunday, June 12.

Queen Elizabeth had officially reached 70 years of rule on 6 February, and last weekend, the 96-year-old’s Platinum Jubilee was marked with four days of celebrations across the UK.

WOW.
