For 60 years The Queen has been on the throne, through good times and bad. We’ve celebrated many royal weddings, world cups, birthdays and this year we’re celebrating something very extraordinary; her Diamond Jubilee.
Here are a couple facts about The Queen that we found very interesting!
The Queen is the second longest serving monarch
The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have sent approximately 45,000 Christmas cards during The Queen’s reign
The Queen learnt to drive in 1945
The Queen has 30 godchildren
