On Saturday, Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her official 92nd birthday.

While she turned 92 back in April, Her Majesty has two birthdays each year — her real one on April 21, and her official public one on the second Saturday of June.

In her 92 years, the record-breaking monarch has pretty much seen it all — she has undertaken more than 260 official overseas visits and has lived through 20 British prime ministers and 16 US Presidents.

In celebration of her official birthday, we’ve found a photo from every single year of her remarkable life.

Scroll down for a look at the most important photo from each year since Her Majesty was born.

1926: The Queen was born at 2:40 a.m. on April 21, 1926, at 17 Bruton Street in London. This photo shows the newly born Princess Elizabeth with her father and mother, the Duke and Duchess of York — later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.

1927: She was the couple’s first child and was christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary in Buckingham Palace’s private chapel. She was named Elizabeth after her mother, Mary after her grandmother Queen Mary, and Alexandra after her great-grandmother Queen Alexandra.

1928: No one ever thought Elizabeth would become queen. This became apparent only once her father’s elder brother Edward abdicated, putting her father on the throne and making her first in line.
