Coronation 1953

Today the Royal Collection Trust opened The Queen's Coronation 1953 in The State Rooms of Buckingham Palace (CLICK). The exhibition marks the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, bringing together for the first time since that day dresses, uniforms and robes, paintings and other works of art. Shown is the Robe of Estate, which must have been a drag to wear. CLICK for a BBC picture gallery of exhibits. Admission prices are astronomical: £19 adults, £17.50 silver surfers! This isn't a show for Her Majesty's impoverished subjects, but a ripoff for rich tourists.
