UK Marks Queen’s 60th Coronation

(London) – Britain’s royal family gathered at Westminster Abbey to mark the 60th anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Elizabeth, now 87, was crowned in the abbey on June 2, 1953, in a ceremony laden with 1,000 years of tradition.
Her children and grandchildren are among 2,000 people attending anniversary service, which featured hymns, prayers, a reading from Prime Minister David Cameron and a poem written for the occasion by poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy. The jewel-encrusted, golden St. Edward’s Crown will sit on the altar — the first time it has left the Tower of London since the 1953 coronation.
