Queen Elizabeth: On Sunday it will have been 60 years since her coronation

May 27, 2013

According to The Telegraph:

At her Coronation 60 years ago, the most important moment for Elizabeth II was not the crowning but swearing to God to serve her people all her life.

Only the weather seems the same. Sixty years ago next Sunday, on June 2 1953, the day of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, rain fell constantly on the massive crowds that had gathered in London to see her crowned. The weather that day was as drear as it has been this spring and early summer. But for those old enough to remember 1953 – the young Queen herself had turned 27 on April 21 – nothing else remains the same.
