These “Royal Editions” of Andy Warhol’s Reigning Queens: Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom are sprinkled with diamond dust to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. AKA they are fancy as f*ck and kept with other canvas Kweens in the Royal Collection. You can still see the version for basics at the Tate Modern.

As of 5:30 PM BST on Wednesday September 9, 2015 (that’s 9:30 am for us Yanks on the West Coast) Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning British monarch in history. At that exact moment the Queen will have reigned for 63 years, seven months, 16 hours and roughly 30 minutes, thus beating out her Great Great Grandma Queen Victoria for the Baddest Royal Bird award.

Victoria be like,” I pushed out nine children and still lived until 81, but whatever.”

So join us in raising a pint and a heartfelt “Yas Kween” for the ever so elegantly aging Elizabeth II!

…may Queen Bey of the U.S.A. reign as long.
