The Other Diamond Jubilee


(YouTube link)

Only one other monarch has reigned over England as long as Queen Elizabeth II, although the current queen may surpass that record in the next few years. Queen Victoria reigned from 1837 to 1901, and was the first British monarch to be photographed or captured in motion pictures. This sequence was recorded during Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee in 1897. See more surviving film footage and photographs at Buzzfeed. Link
