Happy Birthday to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II

She turns 91 today.

She is the second Queen Regnant to have the name Elizabeth.

Great Britain’s longest reigning monarch, she ascended the throne the year I was born, 1952.

She surpassed her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria to become the longest lived British monarch in December 2007, and the longest-reigning British monarch on September 9, 2015.

She is also the longest reigning Queen Regnant in history – as in all of history!

Presently, she is also the longest serving head of state.

Take that, boys!

I know in Republican USA, we’re not all that royalty obsessed, but you have to hand it to the old gal!

Happy Birthday Your Majesty!
