The Queen’s Coronation Anniversary

Join Palmers as we hold a truly British celebration of Her Majesty The Queen’s 60th anniversary of her coronation! Last year the nation celebrated the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne - this year we recognise the actual anniversary of her coronation with more festivities.

On June 2th 1953 the Archbishop of Canterbury conducted the Queen’s Coronation Ceremony at Westminster Abbey. The ceremony followed the accession of Elizabeth II on 1952, the year long gap represents the period of mourning for the previous monarch and gives time for all the preparation needed to organise the important event. It was the 39th documented coronation in the Abbey (William the Conqueror was the first on 1066).

On 4th June 2013 at 11am Her Majesty and members of The Royal Family will attend a service of celebration in Westminster Abbey to mark the 60th anniversary. There will be a display of the gowns and outfits worn by the Royal family at the coronation in 1953. On the evenings of 12th and 13th July Buckingham Palace will host spectacular Gala celebrations, reflecting the cultural excellence of Her Majesty’s reign.

What will you be doing on June 4th this year?
