Shouldn't the record-breaking day have been on the 8th at 5:30 PM? June 20th to January 22nd is 7 months and 2 days, while February 6th to September 9th is 7 months and 3 days.

Months aren't the same length, though. June 20th to January 22nd (216 days) is actually one day longer than February 6th to September 9th (215 days).

The one day difference is accounted for by Elizabeth II's extra leap day in 2000 (1900 wasn't a leap year).

AMIDST a growing debate about severing ties with the British monarchy, Jamaica on Wednesday celebrated Queen Elizabeth II as the longest ever reigning monarch in Britain's history with a special ceremony at King's House.

The event, hosted by Governor General Sir Patrick Allen, was attended by several dignitaries including Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, former prime ministers PJ Patterson and Edward Seaga, Government ministers and high school students, who Sir Patrick said were invited on the Queen's request.

"Her majesty has strictly required that the event to mark this milestone be used to promote education," he said in his welcome address.

PM Portia Miller Simpson, who attended the ceremony, is a well-known self-proclaimed republican.

Congratulations to HM, the BRF and the UK for this amazing milestone.

I am surprised though, that for such a historic occasion there weren't any public celebrations in my local area, or a day off for the country to celebrate.
It would be interesting to see a list of the longest reigning monarchs from the other European monarchies.

I post this article here, and not in the fashion thread because it is about her being the longest reigning British monarch.

The ultimate guide to the Queen's style revealed | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
Reignbow! She's worn every colour under the sun in her record reign - and knows every fashion trick in the book. Here we present the ultimate guide to the Queen's style

She is Britain’s ultimate fashion icon — utterly majestic from the crown of her hat to the tips of her patent shoes.


In the 63 years and 219 days the Queen has reigned, she hasn’t put a foot wrong when it comes to her wardrobe, which is impressive, considering she changes outfits up to five times a day.

Some have claimed the Queen doesn’t care about fashion. But a closer look reveals the opposite. As Angela Kelly, her dresser for 21 years, says: ‘The Queen loves clothes and is a real expert on fabrics. It’s not been me teaching the Queen — it’s the other way round.’ In her youth, Her Majesty often wore eye-catching designs, from turbans and opulent furs to short-sleeved dresses cinched at the waist.

You will spot not a hair out of place, a wrinkle in the fabric of her outfit; no dropped hemlines, visible hat pins or scuffs on her heels.

What you will see is a kaleidoscope of colour. At 5ft 4in, she needs to wear bright hues to stand out. As she once said: ‘If I wore beige, nobody would know who I am.’ We bring you the ultimate guide to our ‘reign-bow’ Queen…
This is just some of the pictures from this article.

Our beautiful Queen.

HM is truly impressive when it comes to her wardrobe but I think the thing that most tickles me is that she has color coordinated clear umbrellas to match any outfit. Now that's class.

My grandmother loves that too. She never fails to comment on the color-coordinated clear umbrellas .

I agree with you. Elizabeth has always been a beautiful woman and over the decades still retains that beauty. She has one of the most beautiful smiles in the world I think.

I read something about them. There is a pocket around the rim of the umbrellas that colored material is put into that matches her outfit. She does have several umbrellas, but not one in every color that you see. It is a pretty nifty idea.

Speaking of longest reigning monarchs.....is there a mechanism in place in the event that the Queen becomes incapacitated in some way?

How does that work?

Yes - the Regency Act 1937 - covers that possibility.


There are five people - positions actually - the PM, the spouse, the doctor, the Lord Chamberlain and the Archbishop of Canterbury - of whom three have to agree that she is mentally incapable of carrying out her duties. In that eventuality being reported to the House of Commons, Charles immediately becomes Prince Regent. If she recovers from whatever it was that made her incapable and that recovery is reported to the House of Commons then Charles steps down.


I have deliberately used the positions and not the names of the current incumbents as it is the holder of that position so 'spouse' at the moment is obviously Philip but in the next reign Philip won't be one of those people but Camilla will step up and then Kate. There may be another person on the list but I can only remember 5 positions and only 3 have to agree. They also cover a range of positions - elected political leader, family, medical, non-elected political position and religious.


The Regency Act states that it is the next in the line of succession. There was an amendment in 1953 naming Philip in the eventuality of no adult child or grandchild (he has 10 now ahead of him to become Regent - Charles, William, Harry, Andrew, Beatrice, Eugenie, Edward, Anne, Peter and Zara)
