Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-ruling monarch in British History. She has been served by 14 UK Prime Ministers, including Winston Churchill, Margaret Thatcher, and Boris Johnson. The Queen has seen unprecedented social, cultural, and political change during her record-breaking reign and has traveled extensively throughout the United Kingdom, Canada, and the Commonwealth. She was the first monarch to be crowned in a televised coronation ceremony. During the British Empire and Commonwealth, the Queen’s parents and grandparents traveled extensively, but the Queen came to hold the record for most countries visited by an individual monarch: 120 countries on six continents. Between 1951 and 2010, she has made 23 official royal visits to Canada, more than any other country outside the United Kingdom.
She has been ruling the country for so long that some people began to think that she might be immortal. This speculation quickly gained traction and even inspired some people to create hilarious memes.
