Queen Elizabeth II has become Britain’s longest-reigning monarch on Wednesday, surpassing her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria.

On June 2, 1953 Queen Elizabeth II was crowned at Westminster Abbey at the age of 25, after the death of her father George VI.

Elizabeth is the longest-reigning female monarch in the world today. Her years on the throne are second only to King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand, 87, the world’s current longest-serving head of state. The king, who came to the throne in 1946, has reigned for 69 years and is widely revered by Thais.
