Queen Elizabeth II to become UK's longest-serving monarch

Queen Elizabeth II is set to become Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, surpassing the record of her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria around 5:30 pm on September 9 after 23,226 days, 16 hours and roughly 30 minutes on the throne.
The exact moment at which the 89-year-old monarch will reach the milestone is hard to pinpoint, as the precise time of her father King George VI’s death in his sleep in 1952 is not known.
However, the queen will not indulge in fanfare or celebrations, marking the occasion with just another public engagement – this time opening a new railway line in Scotland. Nor are there widespread street parties or other official events planned. The mood is in keeping with the sober style of her reign, something inherited from her father and grandfather, King George V.
