Momentous Monarch

The Friday File: On 09/08/22, Queen Elizabeth II died at 96. On the throne for 70 years, she was the longest reigning British monarch, surpassing the 63 years set by her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria. Her son, now King Charles III, at 73 was the longest serving heir-apparent in British history at 70 years. She advised 15 prime ministers, owned dozens of Corgis, and displayed stoic devotion to her job.
