Today UKIP Leader Nigel Farage has congratulated Her Majesty the Queen for becoming our longest-reigning monarch: "Congratulations to Her Majesty the Queen, the greatest ambassador our nation has ever had."
UKIP Culture Spokesman Peter Whittle also added his congratulations saying: "We offer Her Majesty The Queen our loyal good wishings as she celebrates today the extraordinary milestone of becoming the longest reigning monarch in British history.
"As she opens Parliament or stands before the Cenotaph for the 60th time, the Queen appears as permanent as those edifices, embodying in flesh and blood the history and traditions that they represent in brick and stone.
"With her 90th birthday on the horizon next April, the Queen rightly inspires unequalled respect and affection, not just in Britain but throughout the world.
"Her devotion to the Commonwealth has kept that institution alive often in the face of indifference from her successive governments. This must count as one of her greatest personal achievements
"The monarchy is a great unifying force, and the fact that it remains at the very heart of our national life is due to the exceptional devotion to duty the Queen has unstintingly displayed.
"Long may she continue to reign."
