Queen Elizabeth: The Many World Leaders She Has Outlasted

Yesterday, Queen Elizabeth II became the UK's longest serving monarch - overtaking Queen Victoria's reign of 63 years, seven months and two days. When Elizabeth became Queen in 1952, Stalin was still leader of the USSR and Truman President of the US.

Since then Her Majesty has seen many notable statesmen and women come and go, although one current monarch who came to the throne before her is still in place.

Of course she's lived a long time; as with all royalty, she doesn't actually do anything. Kind of like Obama, but less annoying.
