Synopsis

The summer of 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of one of the most joyous days in 20th-century British history the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This official souvenir album, which accompanies the Summer Opening exhibition at Buckingham Palace, recalls the celebrations of 1953, and recreates all the preparations and pageantry of the event for its 60th anniversary. Lavishly illustrated throughout with newly commissioned photography, it brings together the dresses, uniforms and robes, the jewels and the crowns worn at the Coronation for the first time since 1953, and tells the story in pictures of the people, the places, the ceremony and the events of this most extraordinary occasion. A stunning souvenir of royal history, The Queens Coronation 1953 will make the perfect gift for anyone with an interest in the pageantry at the heart of the British monarchy.
