Let’s take a moment to appreciate the Queen, shall we?

Today marks the 65th year that the Queen has been the Queen. And to think, we thought committing to all six seasons of Game of Thrones was a big ask.

Queen Elizabeth II is the longest reigning monarch, and therefore the first ever to reach her Sapphire Jubilee (apparently sapphires beat diamonds in this equation, which is confusing but we’ll go with it). And for all the pearls and the tiaras and the castles and the being-90, the Queen seems like someone we wouldn’t mind being mates with.

So in honour of this day, we thought we’d take a moment out of our day to reflect on some of the moments Her Majesty was not just the Queen, but a total queeeeeen.

The time she got excited… by cows

The time she was a badass in white gloves

The time she served up pure old Hollywood

The time she met the Spice Girls and loved it

The time she was everyone’s strict Granny

The time she casually changed a tyre on an ambulance in WW2

And let’s never forget, the time she was the ultimate Bond girl

Yaaas, Queen.
