Queen Elizabeth II Marks 65years on Throne

Today, February 6th marks 65 years since Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne. She became UK's longest reigning monarch in 2015 after overtaking Queen Victoria.

Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne on the 6th of February 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI.

She became the UK's longest-reigning monarch in 2015 at the age of 89.

Royal gun salutes will be fired across the capital to mark the anniversary of her ascension, as is tradition. There are no grand festivities planned to mark the head-of-state’s new milestone and the Queen is not due to be out and about on official engagements on the landmark day
