Celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Coronation
Sixty years ago today, Princess Elizabeth became Her Majesty The Queen. Today we at The Steeple Times join with the nation in celebrating this historic moment.
Elizabeth II has shone as a constitutional monarch of 16 sovereign states and their territories and dependencies and head of the 54-member Commonwealth of Nations and truly has led a remarkable life.
The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey on 2nd June 1953 was the first time that the ceremony was televised. An estimated 27 million people watched the event live whilst a further 11 million listened on the radio.
In the years since Her Majesty has served with dedication and humility. She has presided over great changes both in Great Britain and abroad and done so in a most dignified fashion. We do hope that you’ll accompany us in raising a glass to her wherever in the world you may be.
