All the times Britain celebrated the Queen's jubilees in the most British way imaginable

The Queen made history on Monday as she became the first British monarch ever to reach a Sapphire Jubilee, 65 years on the throne.

There are no official celebrations planned, as her majesty will be spending the day privately in Sandringham House, Norfolk.

But let's take a moment to look back on how the nation pulled out all of the stops to jubilantly celebrate throughout the Queen's reign.

SILVER JUBILEE

Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Silver Jubilee in 1977, marking 25 years on the throne. Official festivities took place throughout the year, including visits to Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

(FILES) Britain's Queen Elizabeth II (L) accompanied by Prince Philip waves to the crowd, 02 June 1953, after being crowned solemnly at Westminter Abbey in London. Queen Elizabeth II was set Thursday 20 December 2007, to become the oldest monarch, overtaking her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria amid signs the royal family is preparing for life after 81-year-old 'Lillibet'. Victoria died in 1901 aged 81 years and 243 days, and Elizabeth will mark passing the milestone with neither pomp nor ceremony, spending the day as usual with her husband of 60 years, Prince Philip.
