Britain's Queen Elizabeth marks 63 years as monarchComments
Britain’s Royal Family is expected to privately mark the Queen’s accession to the throne 63 years ago.
Gun salutes were fired in London and Edinburgh on Friday to celebrate
Elizabeth II becoming the country’s head of state in 1952, aged 26, when her father King George VI died.
Later this year on September 9, she will beat the record set by her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, to become the United Kingdom’s longest serving monarch.
