“On behalf of Pendle Council and the people of Pendle, I would like to congratulate the Queen and commend her on her dedication and service to our country.”
The Queen will have reigned for 63 years and seven months – calculated at 23,226 days, 16 hours and approximately 30 minutes – at about 17:30 BST.
