Queen Elizabeth II’s jubilee marks her 70-year reign

Queen Elizabeth II is the United Kingdom’s longest-reigning royal and among the world’s longest-ruling monarchs in history.
The 96-year-old marked her platinum jubilee on February 6 as she ascended to the throne 70 years ago in 1952, following the death of her father King George VI.
In June 1953, Elizabeth was officially crowned as the queen of the UK and queen regnant of seven Commonwealth countries at the time.
To commemorate this, on Thursday, millions of people in the UK and across the world are starting a four-day celebration honouring her reign.
