In September, Queen Elizabeth II will become our country’s longest-serving monarch, overtaking the long reign of Queen Victoria.

She is set to celebrate an incredible 63 years and 216 days as ruler, and to celebrate this the Eastern Daily Press is printing a very special publication, opening our unrivalled archives on her life when she has visited her beloved Norfolk.

From the warmth and happiness of Christmas with her family, to official visits all around the county and neighbouring Fenland and Suffolk, the EDP has documented a reign which makes millions of people around the UK proud.

To celebrate the occasion, the Eastern Daily Press is offering you a chance to be part of our historic publication.

If you pre-order our book, you can also send a message of congratulations to the Queen, or to someone to whom you want to give the book – in this country or overseas.

For many, this will be a personalised present which can be saved up for Christmas joys ahead – a lovely link between ordinary folk and our extraordinary monarch.

Here are examples of the messages we envisage:

• Wishing The Queen many more wonderful days on the throne. Hilda and Morris Johnson, of Your Town, Norfolk

• Mum and Dad, we hope you enjoy this book of magical memories with love from Hilda and Morris, Your Town, North Suffolk

Our special tribute, more than 170 pages compiled from our archives, will be a glossy publication, Long to Reign Over Us and will be priced at £9.95.

But if you pre-order, you can get the book – for one week only – for just £7.95.

Your message must be no more than 130 characters (including your name/s). You can make sure you reserve your copy by ordering in advance and save £2 on the cover price.

It will be sent direct to your door in the UK and you can write your own message on the order form, which we’ll include among the many greetings in the book.

Order your copy - and post your message - online at www.buyamag.co.uk/reign

A further postage cost for books to be sent overseas will apply.
