Queen Reaches Oldest Monarch Mark
The Queen has become the oldest British monarch after she overtook Queen Victoria, her great-great grandmother, at 1700 GMT.
Queen Victoria, who was born on 24 May 1819, lived for 81 years, seven months and 29 days.
The Queen still has a way to go before becoming the longest reigning British monarch. She will claim that record on 9 September 2015, when she would have been on the throne for almost 64 years. Providing she lives that long of course. Link
