Queen makes it record

So it was 60 years this August since the first Guinness World record book was published with everything from the tallest man and building to the richest person and largest diamond.

I’m old enough to remember the twins, Norris and Ross McWhirter, hosting the children’s version Record Breakers, later with Roy Castle.

It’s worthy of note that on September 9, the Queen overtook Queen Victoria as the longest serving monarch after 63 years on the throne.

Well done your Majesty but will Prince Charles be the longest serving Prince of Wales?
