1953 - The coronation: Young Elizabeth becomes Queen of England

Rights-Managed, Editorial

Location and time:

United Kingdom, London, Buckingam Palace, 12-05-1953


Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (born April 21st, 1926) is the Queen regnant and Head of State of Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, The Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Canada, Grenada, Jamaica, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, and the United Kingdom. On June 2nd, 1953, Queen Elizabeth II was coronated at Westminster Abbey. After the Coronation, Elizabeth and Philip moved to Buckingham Palace in central London. Like many of her predecessors, however, it is believed she dislikes the Palace as a residence and considers Windsor Castle, west of London, to be her home. She also spends time at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. At the time of Elizabeth”s accession, there was much talk of a "new Elizabethan age." Elizabeth”s role has been to preside over Britain as it has shared world economic and military power with a growing host of independent nations and principalities. As nations have developed economically and in literacy, Queen Elizabeth has happily witnessed, over the past fifty years, a gradual transformation of the British Empire into its modern successor, the Commonwealth. She has worked hard to maintain links with former British possessions, and in some cases, such as South Africa, she has played an important role in retaining or restoring good relations.

Sound Bite and conversation:

Kelley, Kitty

(Queen’s Biographer) , speaking English:
-  "“During her coronation, she said that she would dedicate her life to duty to her subjects. And the Queen is Queen for life. She will not hand it over.” "

Starkey, Dr. David

(Court-Historian) , speaking English:
-  "“I was outside the house about 12 hours after the death was announced and I would not have been surprised to have seen a storming of the Bastille, a storming of Buckingham Palace. Popular feeling was feverish, hostile and clumps of agitators going round. Police nervous.” "

Starkey, Dr. David

(Court-Historian) , speaking English:
-  "“This rock solid institution was murdered. It was murdered by a pretty young woman called Princess Diana. And it was murdered with aforethought. The rule of the House of Windsor had been a very simple rule. You keep up appearances. You maintain the performance of happy families.” "

Starkey, Dr. David

(Court-Historian) , speaking English:
-  "“The British monarchy in 1952-53 was rock solid. There was a very nice verdict given on it by ex-King Faruk of Egypt who says, ‘Soon there will only be five kings in the world; four in a pack of cards and the King or Queen of England.” "

Kelley, Kitty

(Queen’s Biographer) , speaking English:
-  "“It’s a very painful picture to watch because the Queen had been away for three months and when she returned, instead of swooping up her child and kissing her child, she merely pats him on the shoulder. It seems to be such a cold, cold, stilted reaction from a woman who’s been separated from her first child for so long.” "

Hicks, Lady Pamela

(Lady of the Court ) , speaking English:
-  "“He was tall and blonde and good-looking, looking like a Viking prince. And Princess Elizabeth was about 12. I think it was love at first sight. I think she completely fell. She thought that he was the most dazzling person that she’d ever seen.” "

Kelley, Kitty

(Queen’s Biographer) , speaking English:
-  "“The Queen is a very controlled, disciplined woman. She was raised that way from the time she was a small child. She was trained to be a monarch. Her father used to make her stand for hours on end while she would get her history lessons so that she would know what it was to stand in public.” "

Starkey, Dr. David

(Court-Historian) , speaking English:
-  "“There are two dirty words in the House of Windsor. They’ve got used to one, which is divorce. They have not yet got used to the other, which is abdication. Abdication is failure. The Queen was brought up to regard the abdication of her Uncle David, Edward VIII, as the ultimate act of treason.” "

Starkey, Dr. David

(Court-Historian) , speaking English:
-  "“The Queen came to the throne saying ‘I am going to keep things exactly as they have been. Exactly has they have been with my father. In other words, I’m going to remain the image of the idealized pattern of family life.” "

Marseilles, Gill

(witness, saw young Elizabeth) , speaking English:
-  "“I’d never seen so many people. And I didn’t think everybody would be awake all night. And in the morning when the road sweepers came to clean the roads, everybody was cheering them. I thought – the Queen’s coming.” "

Starkey, Dr. David

(Court-Historian) , speaking English:
-  "“She is the most photographed, the most reported woman in the world. Perpetually on the public stage for half a century. And not a single word or gesture will ever be remembered. Now that is an extraordinary achievement – of a sort.” "
