It was just a few days ago that Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning UK monarch in history, officially breaking the record held by her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria. According to the BBC, while addressing the public, Her Majesty stated that “the title was not one to which I have ever aspired.” The Queen was said to give a humbling service as she addressed gathered crowds. To celebrate the occasion, Her Majesty and Prince Philip opened the new Scottish Borders railway, while accompanied by Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon. Meanwhile, in London, a procession along the Thames took place, featuring a long row of historic vessels, cruisers and passenger boats.
The BBC reported that acting Labour leader Harriet Harman stated that it would be “no exaggeration to say that the Queen was admired by billions of people all around the world.” That may be true, but perhaps the Queen’s admirers do not know her as well as they think they do. The following is a list of 10 fascinating facts you probably did not know about Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the second.

If following the UK government’s drinking standards, the Queen could be considered “a binge drinker.”
