Bow down, Betches. On September 9, Queen Elizabeth II officially surpasses Queen Victoria to become the longest-ruling monarch in English history. She’s been Queen for 63 years and 216 days, which is literally one hundred times longer than we can imagine committing to anything. Lizzie is 89 years young, and tbh she looks amazing.
Back when Elizabeth became Queen in 1952, Barbie didn’t exist yet, being gay was illegal, and Helen Keller was still alive. Needless to say, it was a very different world. Nonetheless, Queen Elizabeth has been there through it all, and she’s still pretty much the OG Betch. Have a few drinks today, Elizabeth, and long live the Queen.
