Her Majesty the Queen has topped Vogue’s list of the 25 Most Influential Women in Britain. At 96 – and during the year we celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne, this latest accolade is testament to the enduring legacy of the Queen as she joins a list filled with up-and-coming designers, sports stars and entrepreneurs.

The world might have changed a lot since the Queen first took to the throne 70 years ago, but Her Majesty has proven she is still as inspirational, influential and relevant as ever.

So much so that fashion bible, Vogue, have included her as one of the top 25 most influential women in Britain, joining the likes of up-and-coming fashion designers, musicians and artists.

Earning her spot on the list, the tribute reads, “In June, the nation – and world - came together to toast Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which marked an unprecedented 70 years on the throne, a feat no other British monarch has accomplished.”

Touching on how the Queen’s popularity has weathered many a storm, the magazine adds, “During a uniquely turbulent period for the Royal Family, the breadth and depth of celebrations were testament to the Queen’s enduring and undimmed popularity, both at home and abroad.”

The powerful praise to Her Majesty ends by writing, “Truly inimitable, as we tentatively begin to look to the future, there is one known certainty: never will there be a Queen, or King, as revered as our reigning monarch.”

Other names to be recognized by the magazine include Baroness Valerie Amos, who this year became the first Black knight or lady companion, the late Deborah James and 19-year-old tennis protegee Emma Raducanu.

Dame Emma Thompson – fresh from her recent sex positive film challenging attitudes towards older women and sex – also makes the list.
