Queen Elizabeth marked 70 years on the British throne on Sunday.
She becomes the first Queen to reign in Europe for that long in over 1000 years.
The 95-year-old became the queen of Britain and more than a dozen other realms including Canada, Australia and New Zealand on the death of her father King George VI on 6 February 1952. This happened while she was in Kenya on an International tour.
Queen Elizabeth will mark ‘Accession Day’ in private. However, there will be four days of national events to mark her Platinum Jubilee in June.
Buckingham Palace on Friday released footage ahead of Sunday’s landmark, showing her viewing items from previous royal jubilees, such as a fan given to her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria to mark her 50th year on the throne in 1887, signed by family, friends and politicians.
