Default Long Live The Queen on the June 2 DCT

Click the image to open in full size.


I’m posting the DCT extra early, so that you will all have time to check out (and enter!) a new contest by Dakotakinz and Tashytoot on the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II:

June 2, 1953: This day marks the official coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Her Other Realms and Territories & Head of the Commonwealth.



Television was in its infancy in 1953, and this was the first major international event to be televised. The number of television licences in the UK doubled to 3 million, and more than 20 million British viewers watched the coronation. For many of them, it was their first time watching TV, in the homes of neighbours or relatives. This helped to boost television’s popularity. InNorth America, recorded broadcasts were viewed by almost 100 million viewers.


Queen Elizabeth had already been queen for a year on the day of her official coronation. She succeeded her father George VI on his death in 1952. This is why we celebrate her 60th Jubilee this year. Many events and pageantry will celebrate this remarkable achievement. Her reign of 60 years is the second-longest for a British monarch. Only her great-great-grandmother Queen Victoria has reigned longer than her.


Elizabeth was born in 1926, at home, by Caesarian section. Four years later, her sister Margaret was born. At that point, her grandfather GeorgeV was on the throne and Elizabeth was third in the line of succession, behind her uncle Edward and her father (later King George VI).

At home, she is known by her nickname Lilibet.

The teenage Elizabeth was a Girl Guide. The 1st Buckingham Palace Company was formed specifically so that the young princess could socialise with girls her own age. Later she was enrolled as a Sea Ranger.

Princess Elizabeth did not go to school. She was educated by private tutors and governesses, and rarely left the palace. When World War II ended, on Victory Day, Elizabeth and her sister Margaret were given permission by their parents to mingle anonymously with the crowds in the streets of London and share in the celebratory jubilation that the war had finally ended.

Have a great day!
