June 23, 2022

According to the International Business Times:

…the 96-year-old queen is already the second-longest reigning monarch in the world, having served the U.K. and Commonwealth for at least 70 years and 127 days.

…she surpassed King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, who ruled the Asian country for 70 years and 126 days before he died in 2016.

“When it comes to how to mark 70 years as your queen, there is no guidebook to follow. It really is a first,” she said. “But I have been humbled and deeply touched that so many people have taken to the streets to celebrate my Platinum Jubilee.”
