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
The time she trolled the Obamas
One of the many times her outfit was #goals
Literally everything about this photo
When she was graceful as a real life Mary Poppins
And let’s never forget, the time she was the ultimate Bond girl
