Video: Stormont marks Queen's record reign

Today history is made when The Queen becomes the longest serving British monarch ever.

And to mark the occasion, last night Finance Minister Arlene Foster MLA hosted a special reception at Parliament Buildings.

The event featured a display of important royal-related artefacts, including a throne actually used by The Queen when she visited Stormont.

Speaking at the reception, Arlene said The Queen had been "a fixed point in an ever-changing world."

"Throughout her long years of public service she has displayed a tireless devotion to our country and its people.

"At all times she has carried out her duties with a warmth of spirit and a kindness of heart that has won her friends and admirers the length and breadth of the globe."
