I'd appreciate a British translation- please

According to this Telegraph article, somehow the Queen will be the oldest Monarch.

Except that none of the dates mentioned seem to [my American math] to match.
Q.E. was born on April 21 [a woman does not disclose her age].
Queen Vic was 81 when she died on Jan 22, 1901.

BUT...this Saturday...for some British mathematical reasoning- she'll be the longest reining British Monarch. If I read the article right.

GAWD, so confusing- mixing English accounting with American ways of telling time.....
