The circumstances of The Queen's accession on 6th February 1952 could not have been more dramatic. The Princess was on a tour of the commonwealth some 4,000 miles away from home, at the Treetops Hotel in Kenya. The news of her fathers' death was broken to her by her husband, The Duke of Edinburgh. On that very same day, at the age of twentysix and a mother of two small children, she was proclaimed queen.
The solemn coronation ceremony, held sixteen months later in Westminster Abbey was the first televised coronation in our history - with an estimated audience of 20 million people watching the service on TV and another 12 million listening to it on the radio. The event established the television in British life with many families acquiring their first setsspecifically for the occasion.
