Telegrams from the Queen
When the Queen ascended her throne in 1953 she sent out 200 telegrams to centenarians. In 2008 12,000 people received their telegrams and by 2050 we can expect 250,000 new centenarians each year! That's a lot of telegrams! We also know that one in four babies born today could live to be 100.
