The Queen is currently 96 years old, and the longest-reigning Queen in British history.

He has been on the throne for 70 years now, a fact that is being celebrated with gusto during the ongoing Platinum Jubilee bank holiday.

There are several festivities currently underway – and it remains to be seen what celebrations will take place if Her Majesty reaches her 100th birthday in four years’ time.

The milestone age was actually reached by The Queen Mother, who was 101 years old. And the Queen’s aunt Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester was 102 years old.

So, what could potentially happen on such an occasion?

What if the queen turns 100?

Although, Her Majesty has two birthdays: her actual birthday in April and her official birthday in June.

There’s no doubt that the Trooping the Color parade on the Queen’s official birthday – which features the royal family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace – will be an extra special.

Besides, no one could have known what exactly would happen to mark such a momentous occasion.

It certainly deserves a Platinum Jubilee-style celebration, perhaps including street parties, parades as well as (fingers crossed) an extra bank holiday that year.

When The Queen Mother turned 100 in the year 2000, a special birthday parade was held at the Horse Guards – and it featured floats, an orchestra and a marching band.

Cake was also given to thousands of well wishers who gathered in central London to enjoy the festivities, writes Express,

The Queen Mother was honored on a commemorative £5 coin as well as a £20 banknote.

Meanwhile for Princess Alice, the Duchess of Gloucester’s 100th birthday in 2001, events were far more important.

The private princess had a birthday party with members of the royal family at Kensington Palace, and there was a 20-minute military parade in her honor, according to Greetings!,

Alice was also honored by one of her patrons, St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London, with a garden named after her.

It’s not hard to imagine that a coin would be minted for the Queen’s 100th—and that parks, places, and others would be named Elizabeth in her honor.

Her Majesty already appears on UK tickets, but maybe a special edition will be made.

Interestingly, it is well known that everyone who turns 100 can receive a special message from the Queen. But, naturally, maybe it will not work for him to send a note to himself?

One can only speculate – but wouldn’t it be nice if fans of the Queen from around Britain and the Commonwealth sent her cards?

For now, we’ll just have to wait and see.
