Queen of the Queens T-Shirt
On 6 February 1952, Princess Elizabeth acceded to the throne to become Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
On 9 September 2015, she became the longest-reigning English monarch in history, surpassing the nearly 64-year-long reigns of her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria.
She can also lay claim to being the world’s oldest reigning monarch and the longest-reigning queen regnant in history.
A bit of History
Elizabeth became Queen on the death of her father King George VI. She was 25 then and on tour in Kenya with her husband Prince Philip.
She was crowned the following year, on 2 June 1953.
At the beginning of her reign, Joseph Stalin was the leader of the Soviet Union and Harry Truman was the United States president.
In 2012 Elizabeth celebrated her “Diamond Jubilee”, marking 60 years on the throne.
Prince Charles, incidentally, holds a world record of his own – as the longest-serving heir apparent surpassing his great-great-grandfather Edward VII.
Elizabeth is known to favour simplicity in court life and is also known to take a serious and informed interest in government business, aside from the traditional and ceremonial duties. Her financial and property holdings have made her one of the world’s richest women.
