MY Queen, Elizabeth II, Was Crowned This Day 64 Years Ago — June 2, 1953.

The famous 1953 Coronation.



Elizabeth II,
Dei Gratia Britanniarum Regnorumque Suorum Ceterorum Regina,
Consortionis Populorum Princeps, Fidei Defensor

Her Majesty Elizabeth the Second,
by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith


I do not have to be remembered that she was crowned in June 1953. That was my year of birth. Also the year of the first known ascent of Mount Everest — just ahead of the coronation.

So she has been Queen all my life.

As I have said before I was NOT always a Monarchist. But, she has WON me over. She is special. Not sure what we will do when she is gone — which, alas, is going to happen at some point. But, not thinking of that today.

64-years.

Longest currently reigning monarch — and the ‘currently reigning’ is key.

At present only #42 in the list of longest reigning monarchs! #42. Wow. Record is 82! 82. Lot that reigned 70+ years. Impressive.
