LONG LIVE THE QUEEN

Queen Is Longest Ruling British Monarch

Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest-ruling British monarch Wednesday, beating the record set by her great-great-grandmother Victoria. She will reach the 23,226-day, 16-hour, and 30-minute—or 63 years and seven months—benchmark at approximately 12:30pm ET. The 89-year-old has said she wants to avoid a fuss on her record-setting day.
