Diamond Jubilee Tribute to HM Queen Elizabeth II by justinadriel Diamond Jubilee Tribute to HM Queen Elizabeth II by justinadriel
A tribute to a majestic monarch, a steadfast sovereign, a hardworking head of state, and my personal pen pal. (See animated version here: [link])

After 60 years, the figures are arresting. Queen Elizabeth II has made over 300 state visits abroad, some 25,000 visits around Britain to greet, meet, open and tour, hosted more than 100 state banquets for foreign heads of state, conferred 400,000 honours, dealt with around 150 prime ministers in Britain and the Commonwealth, received 3.5 million pieces of correspondence, and attended to daily red boxes containing various matters of state, cabinet minutes, appointments, legislation. (From INTELLIGENT LIFE magazine, Jan-Feb 2012)

The 6th of February 2012 marks her Diamond Jubilee (60th year on the throne). Should Her Majesty still be reigning on the 10th of September 2015, at the age of 89, she would surpass Queen Victoria as the longest-reigning monarch in British and Commonwealth history (as well as the longest-reigning female monarch in world history). On the 6th of February 2022, at the age of 95, she would celebrate her Platinum Jubilee (70th year on the throne). Should she still be reigning on the 26th of May 2024, at the age of 98, she would surpass Louis XIV of France as the longest reigning monarch in European history.
