In which we celebrate, in our own small way, the life and reign of a great lady

Her full title is:
Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth Defender of the Faith

This month, Queen Elizabeth's reign surpassed that of Queen Victoria, making her the longest reigning monarch in British history, and perhaps in all history. Before she was crowned she said:

I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.

Long indeed has your service been, Your Majesty. Thank you.

God Save the Queen.
