On this date in 1953, Queen Elizabeth II is crowned in Westminster Abbey. She ascended to the throne on February 6, 1952, upon the death of her father. After a year of mourning for their beloved George VI, the country and commonwealths celebrated the coronation full of pomp and circumstance.
No doubt London will be rocking this weekend. Perhaps this is a dry run for safety and security when the Olympics open on July 27.
