According to the Corporate Dispatch:

In 2015, the sovereign became the longest reigning British Monarch in history, overtaking a record previously set by her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, who sat on the throne for 63 years and 216 days.

Queen Victoria presided over Britain as monarch for 23,226 days…

On Saturday July 18, Queen Elizabeth II has sat on the throne for a grand total of 25,000 days.

A spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said the 94-year-old will spend the day “privately.” When she became Britain’s longest-serving monarch five years ago, the Queen said the record was “not one to which I have ever aspired.”
