Speaking at the event, the British High Commissioner, Mr Jon Benjamin, said the Queen had worked with 12 different British Prime Ministers, six Archbishops of Canterbury "and with many, many heads of state throughout our Commonwealth".

He said she had also worked with 12 US Presidents and seven Popes during her reign, which, according to him, surpassed Queen Victoria’s to become the longest in Britain’s long history.
