On Sunday, they’ll celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee 70 years after she took the throne.
It was on February 6th, 1952 that Princess Elizabeth was proclaimed queen at the age of 27.
At the time the British Empire stretched across the world and the royalty was widely revered.
Since then, the world has undergone profound changes and the empire shrank and then crumbled. However, most members of what is now the British Commonwealth have remained loyal and respect her years of service.
Sunday there will be celebration ceremonies all across the United Kingdom.
