Although Her Majesty The Queen was enthroned on 6th February 1952, aged 25, she was not actually crowned until her Coronation on 2nd June 1953.
The spectacular Coronation ceremony took place in London’s iconic Westminster Abbey, and was revolutionarily televised and watched by millions across the globe.
She has since become the longest ever reigning monarch of The United Kingdom and Commonwealth.
