Coronation Of Queen Elizabeth II- This Day 1953

On this day in 1953 at London’s Westminster Abbey-the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Father King George VI had died 16 months earlier. This was the first televised coronation. Sixty years later the Queen is alive and kicking at the age of 87. She has enjoyed incredibly fine health. I wonder if she will outlive Charles? Chuck has to be wondering. I am not a fan of royalty at all but I think QEII has conducted herself the past sixty years with a lot of class and dignity.
