Queen Elizabeth II To Commerate 65th Anniversary, A Sapphire Jubilee
Elizabeth II will be commemorating her 65th anniversary as queen on Monday in Britain and she will be the only British monarch ever to celebrate a Sapphire Jubilee.
The 90-year-old will be spending the day at her country estate Sandringham, about 110 miles north of capital London. She is the world’s most prominent nonagenarian who had been defined with decades of duty and traveling more than a million miles. She has met with twelve United States presidents and visited about 120 countries. At such old age she has still continued performing her royal duties and last year she carried out eighty public engagements. She is also the most photographed woman in the world.
To celebrate the 65th anniversary the country has issued a new 5-pound coin bearing the sentence she uttered 70 years ago when she turned 21. She said, “My whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service.”
