This year, the British also reported that the king had ascended the throne for 70 years.

The 96-year-old appeared on the balcony on Thursday with the Duke of Kent, who was dressed in military uniform.
It is the first time the Queen has brought Trooping The Color from the balcony since the death of her husband Prince Philip last year. He is 99 years old.
This is exactly what many have noticed. In various comment areas on social media, many have indicated that he looks like the deceased prince.
