8 Photos That Provide A Rare Glimpse Of Queen Elizabeth II On Her Coronation Day


Born in April 1926 in London, England, Queen Elizabeth II was just twenty-five years old when her father, King George VI, passed away in February 1953. It was not until June 2, 1953, however, that young Elizabeth ascended to the throne. Her coronation was the first in England to be televised, and it captured the imagination and adoration of the nation. As part of her Sapphire Jubilee celebrations, rare colour footage of the original coronation, the procession in the streets, and her loyal subjects, has been released. Here are eight photos that provide a rare glimpse into this historic moment.
