So this is kind of cool. Trawling around on the internet, as you do when you're waiting for the baked potatoes to finish cooking, I came across this rather clever graphic of the Queen growing older, on banknotes.

Elizabeth II begins as a young princess (she starred on Canadian dollars in 1935, before her father even had an inkling that he would become King George VI and transform her from royal grandchild to queen in waiting) and ends up as the record breaking, longest reigning monarch that we know and love today (we do still love her, however much we think the PR round the Philip car accident has been less than perfect). As she stares back at us from history it's a reminder of how much she and the world around her has changed in the years since her image first graced money. Now the idea of a banknote without her on it is absurd here in the UK. Sometimes, royal Twitter rocks.
