Queen Elizabeth II the oldest monarch in the world...

"Queen Elizabeth II, the oldest monarch in the world, turns 90 today. She has been served by 12 prime ministers, starting with Churchill. She also navigated the decline of the British Empire; braved the tragedies of her family and the nation; and edged out Queen Victoria as the longest-reigning monarch in British history: 64 years now. This 1939 photo from the @nytimes archives depicts then-Princess Elizabeth, 12, flanked by her parents King George and Queen Elizabeth at a benefit performance at the Coliseum in London."
