Queen Elizabeth II became the fourth longest-lived monarch in history in the world.
Already in first place in British territory, passing in September 2015 the great-grandmother Vittoria with her 63 years and 216 days of government, Elizabeth led the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand since he turned 25, for 68 years and 34 days.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day, the whole royal family paid homage to her with a black and white photo posted on Instagram in which Elizabeth II is portrayed in uniform on horseback: “Head of the Armed Forces, Head of the Commonwealth, Head of State in 16 countries and the longest reigning sovereign in British history“.
On the podium of the longest rulers in front of His Majesty, we find Louis XIV of France (72 years and 110 days, from 14 May 1643 to 1 September 1715), the Thai king Bhumibol Adulyadej (70 years and 126 days, from 9 June 1946 until 13 October 2016) e John II of Liechtenstein (70 years and 91 days, from November 12, 1858 until February 11, 1929).
The ninety-three year old Regina would therefore be just over 2 years away to conquer the top three positions for the longest-lasting crown, carried forward with her head held high, overcoming scandals, divorces, Brexit and Megxit.
In addition to his rigorous and severe image, thanks to his charisma and his personality underlined by the colorful hats (and not only) that he almost never gives up, we could say that he has already conquered the top places for some time as one of the most loved and inspiring ever.
