Queen Elizabeth celebrates sapphire Jubilee

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth celebrates her Sapphire Jubilee today commemorating 65 years on the throne.
She became the UK’s longest-reigning living monarch in 2015 at the age of 89.

It is tradition for the Queen to spend Accession Day in private at her Sandringham Estate and return to Buckingham Palace a few days later.

To mark the occasion a portrait of the Queen has been re-issued showing her wearing jewels given to her by King George VI as a wedding gift in 1947.
