Queen Elizabeth II becomes Britain's oldest-ever monarch

By Margarita Snegireva. On Thursday Queen Elizabeth II will become Britain's oldest-ever monarch. The previous record was set by Queen Victoria.

Victoria, born on May 24, 1819 , lived for 81 years and 243 days.

Buckingham Palace, calculating longevity down to the hour, said Elizabeth would move past Victoria at about 1700 GMT Thursday.

The queen is also within eight years of breaking Victoria's record for the longest reign. She would pass that milestone on Sept. 9, 2015.

The queen is now the fourth longest-reigning monarch. She would overtake King Henry III on March 5, and King George III in 2012.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
