Queen Elizabeth II 

is now the longest-reigning British Monarch.




Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Souvenir

She has surpassed her great, great grandmother,

Queen Victoria.

Queen Victoria is the only other monarch in UK history to have celebrated a Diamond Jubilee.  She reigned for almost 64 years and celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in June 1897.  The tiny silver frame and photo of Queen Victoria is a souviner from that occasion.  I purchased the postage size piece at Bermondsey Market early one Saturday morning in the 1980s.  At just an inch tall, it was a perfect little treasure to bring back to the states.




Queen Elizabeth II

celebrated her Diamond Jubilee

in June 2012.
