Queen Elizabeth II Becomes Britain’s Longest-Serving Monarch
Scholes and I have only been at this job for 3.5 weeks. The Queen, however, has been at hers for 63 years today. 23 thousand 227 days. Becoming the longest reigning monarch in British history, edging past her great great grandmamma Queen Victoria. Standing with her husband, The Emperor Palpatine, in Edinburgh, the 89 year old queen said the title is “not one to which she ever aspired”.
“Inevitably a long life can pass by many milestones – my own is no exception – but I thank for your touching messages of great kindness,” she said.
I don’t actually have a lot of time for the rest of them. Bunch of wankers and poofters, really, but you can’t fault Elizabeth.
Never asked for it – wasn’t even born to it. Her father became King only because his brother ran off with that floozie, and she has never wavered, never complained. She put up with all sorts shenanigans from her family and just did the job – even when many people think the job is obsolete and redundant.
Happy Anniversary, yer majesty.
May your hats remain resplendent. And your lip be forever stiff
