Editor's Viewpoint: Snapshot of Queen

Next week the Queen reaches a remarkable milestone, being 60 years a monarch, making her second only in longevity on the throne to Queen Victoria. To mark her reign 60 photographs chart her royal years and it is with some pride that we can say one from this newspaper is among those chosen.

Queen Elizabeth, who has been a frequent visitor to the province, has carried out her duties with incredible diligence gaining her the respect even of those who have little time for the monarchy.

The photographs of her reign provide a fascinating pictorial journey through a life devoted to public service.
