Queen Elizabeth II is the world's oldest reigning monarch as well as Britain's longest-lived. As a British passport is issued in the name of His/Her Majesty, it is unnecessary for the reigning British Monarch to possess one. Driving licenses are issued in the Queen's name, yet she is the only person in the United Kingdom who doesn't legally need a license to drive or a number plate on her cars. Queen Elizabeth II is the only person to open two editions of Summer Olympic Games (1976 and 2012 Summer Olympics)

The London Eye is a giant Ferris wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. It is Europe's tallest Ferris wheel and the most popular paid tourist attraction in the United Kingdom. Each of the wheel's 32 sealed and air-conditioned ovoidal passenger capsules represent one of the London Boroughs. The wheel rotates at 26 cm (10 in) per second so that one revolution takes about 30 minutes.
