The Union flag will be flying over the Town Hall tomorrow to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II becoming the longest serving British monarch.
Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne on 6 February 1952 and will overtake Queen Victoria's reign of 23,226 days on Wednesday 9 September. According to Buckingham Palace, this will happen at around 5.30pm, who have calculated the reign by days, hours and minutes.
Councillor Bob Price, Leader of Oxford City Council, said: “I’m sure that the people of Oxford would want to recognise the remarkable contribution that the Queen has made to the country since she came to the throne. She has been a popular and much loved Head of State for 63 years and her warmth and dignity has earned her a place in everyone’s heart.”
