Ahead of this weekend's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, here are a host of regal records in honour of Queen Elizabeth II.

Her Majesty remains the world's Longest reigning living queen and will, on 9 September 2015, become the Longest reigning British monarchever when she surpasses Queen Victoria's reign of 63 years, seven months and three days.

However, the title for the overall Longest reigning living monarch continues to be held by King Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama IX) of Thailand, who ascended to the throne on 9 June 1946 and has reigned without interruption ever since - an incredible 65 years, 11 months and 23 days.

At the age of 86, Queen Elizabeth II is the Oldest British monarch in history, exceeding the reign of King George III (1760-1820), who was King until the age of 82. Queen Elizabeth II also holds the record for the Oldest British queen, which she took on 21 December 2007 from her great-great- grandmother Queen Victoria, who reigned until the age of 81 years and 244 days.

The Queen's lengthy reign gives rise to another Guinness World Records title, Longest heir apparent. Since his mother acceded to the throne on 6 February 1952, Prince Charles has been heir apparent for over 60 years, passing the mark set by his great-great-grandfather Edward VII, who finally took to the throne upon the death of Queen Victoria on 22 January 1901 after more than 59 years as heir apparent.

Her Majesty's image is itself record-breaking as The Queen holds the world record for Most currencies featuring the same individual. The Queen's likeness appears on the coinage of at least 45 different countries - more countries than any other living monarch. Queen Victoria appeared on the coinage of 21 countries, and the image of King George V appeared on 19.

Queen Elizabeth II also retains the Wealthiest queen title, with a personal fortune estimated at £310 million ($504 million).

This weekend, as the Queen takes part in the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, she will also be part of an attempt to set a new record for the Largest parade of boats. The current Guinness World Records title stands at 327 boats, from a parade in Bremerhaven, Germany, on 30 April 2011.
