The daily fail and their sources. It has been known for several days that the Queen will carry out an official engagement on September 9.

Yes, Blake, I'm sure HM will reflect on it all on that day, herself as a new and inexperienced monarch, the changes she's seen in Britain and the Commonwealth over those 63 years and many other memories. It will certainly be a momentous occasion.

There will be celebrations in Canada from coast to coast to coast. Click the link below for more information.

On September 9 The Queen’s reign will surpass that of Canada’s other great Mother of Confederation, Queen Victoria. On that date, our Monarch will have served us and the Commonwealth for the longest period in our modern history.

Elizabeth II has been and remains our friend in all weathers, the examplar of devoted service and selflessness to us her peoples. We ask you to encourage your municipality to join in this one small act to help let her know on September 9th that her Canadian family respects her enormously and loves her dearly.

The League has written every municipal head (Mayor, Reeve, Warden, Chief) in Canada, to ask that a brief, simple civic ceremony be held around noon hour outside the city hall on that day in order to form a chain of thanksgiving and affection to mark this memorable date. To facilitate this, we have provided a template for organizing such an event - the details of which can be changed according to local preference. You can open it here:.

On itself it is no achievement. When the Good Lord above calls the Queen before September 9th then she will not become the longest reigning British monarch. When the Good Lord above does not call the Queen, then she will become the longest reigning monarch. It is all relative, of course.

It may sound silly, but I would love them to release a whole family picture to mark this milestone of the Queen's reign. Her with her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

I think that is the sort of photo that would get taken for next year's 90th birthday.

I think it's an amazing milestone to reach. :)

I don't think it sounds silly - I'd love it if such a photo were released and becoming Britain's longest reigning monarch is a huge milestone, so it would seem appropriate.

If not I hope some sort of portrait of HM will be released.

The Queen would probably include her cousins and their spouses, the spouses of her children and grandchildren.

The picture would include so many people that the image of their faces would be very small.

I don't think that sounds at all silly it would be wonderful to have a group family photo to mark the event!

They have to include all the dogs too! Perhaps take the photo around Christmas time for both the milestone of longest reigning British monarch and the 90th birthday. The entire extended family does get together at BP for a Christmas lunch every year so that would be a good time to do it.

THE Queen is to go on a steam train journey with Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon on the day she becomes the longest reigning monarch in British history-

A great group portrait in oils might be commissioned...although placing so many figures well on its own is a rare skill, let alone capturing the likeness... A contemporary version of the great Christian ix , and his family at Fredensborg by Tuxen perhaps ?

I've been waiting to see a nice family portrait of the British royal family. I thought the best time to do it was during The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. Now that George and Charlotte are here, I think one should be done to commemorate (God Willing) The Queen's 90th Birthday.

The Church of England has released a special prayer for Her Majesty the Queen, for when she becomes the longest reigning monarch in British history.

On 9th September 2015 Queen Elizabeth will become the longest serving royal.

The prayers were drafted by the Liturgical Commission of the Church of England, and were approved by Buckingham Palace.

One reads:

"Almighty God, who hast set our gracious sovereign Queen Elizabeth upon the throne of this realm,
and given her to surpass all others in the years of her reign: Receive our heartfelt thanks for her service to her people,
confirm and encourage her in the continuance of the same,
and keep her in thy heavenly wisdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who took the form of a servant for our sake,
and reigneth now in glory with thee and the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end.

Amen."
