Coronation Britain

June 2012 marks the official 60th anniversary of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. CORONATION BRITAIN documents the time span between the beginning of the young queen's reign - with the death of King George VI - and her coronation 16 months later. She was elevated to the sovereign role in a country still depressed, suffering and broken from the aftermath of World War II, and became queen of an empire that was crumbling around her. As well as grieving for her beloved father, the young queen had to contend with a husband who had to give up his promising career for her, two small children, and conflicting advice from palace officials and politicians about how she should conduct her reign. CORONATION BRITAIN is a close, personal and detailed account of the events leading up to the coronation.
