On February 6, 2012, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued six new stamps honouring the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II.
In June 2012, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates 60 years on the throne.
Only one British monarch has previously reached this milestone her great-great-grandmother, Queen Victoria, in the 19th century making this one of the most momentous occasions in the entire history of the monarchy of the United Kingdom.
Her official full title is Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of her other realms and territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.
She became queen in 1952 upon the death of her father, King George VI. Quickly assuming the routine duties of the sovereign, she carried out her first state opening of Parliament in November 1952, and her coronation took place at Westminster Abbey in June 1953.
