A celebration of the coronation of a radiant monarch. On June 2, 1953, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in Westminster Abbey. In 2013 - 60 years later - a nation comes together once more to celebrate that special event. This beautiful souvenir guide, illustrated with over 80 photographs, looks in detail at every aspect of the history of the coronation of kings and queens: the traditions, the pomp, the ceremony, the robes, the jewels, which are the envy of the world. Here, too, we look at that special day in 1953, when joyous crowds lined the streets of London to cheer the magnificent procession carrying the beautiful young queen, who, with the exception of Queen Victoria who reigned for 63 years, is now the longest-serving monarch. She is acknowledged worldwide for the duties she continues to perform with grace and dignity.
