Queen Elizabeth II makes history as British's first monarch to mark sapphire Jubilee after 65-year reign

There was a time when only men ruled over the United Kingdom, today a woman is celebrating being the longest serving monarch in the UK.

Today, February 6th marks 65 years since Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne. She became UK's longest reigning monarch in 2015 after overtaking Queen Victoria.

There will be no big festival to mark this milestone. Grand jubilee celebrations are to be reserved for the platinum jubilee when the queen gets to mark 70 years on the throne and that will be in five years time. By that time, the queen will be 96 years old.

Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne on the 6th of February 1952, following the death of her father, King George VI.
