Life expectancy is increasing across the globe. A recent article in the British Medical Journal points out that it is nearly 100 years since the British monarchy started sending messages to 'current citizens of [the monarch's] realms or UK Overseas Territories' who reached the age of 100. In 1917, King George V sent 24 of these messages. By 1952, this figure had increased to 255 and in 2011 the figure had increased 40-fold to 9 736.
