“`The longest running stage play is Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap in London, with its world premiere on October 6th, 1952. However, Queen Elizabeth II is Britain’s oldest and longest-reigning monarch, having become the official figure-head on February 6th, 1952. She’s also the world’s longest-reigning living monarch, since the death of Thailand’s King Bhumibol Adulyadej, last year. Yes, the reign of The Queen is longer than the stage play!


“`England marked the Queen’s 91st birthday on Friday with a number of gun salutes. She enjoyed her day with a visit to the races. Elizabeth II, who owns and breeds thoroughbred horses, was seen chatting with jockeys at Newbury Race Course, not far from Windsor Castle. She visited the race course with daughter Princess Anne, and sat in the royal box.

“`There were also official celebrations in London, where a troop of the Royal Horse Artillery rode horse-and-gun carriages past Buckingham Palace before staging a 41-gun salute in Hyde Park at noon. Outside the palace, a band of guardsmen in scarlet tunics and bearskin hats played Happy Birthday during the Changing of the Guard ceremony.

“`And, at the centuries-old Tower of London, there was a second salute with 62 guns.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
