That Queen Elizabeth II just keeps on trucking. She's now joined the double-eight club, turning 88 on April 21, 2014.

Born in 1926 and having taken over head of state duties in 1952 at the age of 25, she has been the Queen for 62 years, which is the second longest run, just short of the 63 years of her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria.

She doesn't show too many signs of stopping either. She's pretty spry, having made the rounds this week in Great Britain for Easter and other Holy Week services.
