About the Coronation: The Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II was the ceremony in which the newly ascended monarch, Elizabeth II, was crowned Queen of the United KingdomCanadaAustraliaNew ZealandSouth AfricaCeylon, and Pakistan, as well as taking on the role of Head of the Commonwealth. Elizabeth ascended the thrones of these countries upon the death of her father, the late King George VI on 6 February 1952, and was proclaimed queen by her various privy and executive councils shortly afterward. The coronation, however, was held more than a year after the accession, on 2 June 1953; this followed the long-standing tradition that a joyous festival such as a coronation was inappropriate during the period of mourning that followed the death of the preceding sovereign. In the coronation ceremony itself, Elizabeth swore an oath to uphold the laws of her nations and, specifically for England, to govern the Church of England.

In Westminster Abbey, where English kings and queens have been crowned for 900 years, Elizabeth triumphantly receives her crown on June 2, 1953. Indeed, there were more than 200 microphones in the Abbey and along the procession routes, with 750 commentators broadcasting in 39 languages.

The Archbishop of Canterbury administers the Oath, and presents "Queen Elizabeth, your undoubted Queen," meaning by hereditary right. The people respond with shouts of "God Save Queen Elizabeth." Elizabeth solemnly promised and swore "to govern the People of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon."

The procession of the royal coach through Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace is a spectacle unlike any England has ever seen.          The Actual Televised Ceremony:       Part 1/7: Part 2/7 Part 3/7 Part 4/7 Part 5/7 Part 6/7 Part 7/7     Related Blogs:

1953 - British had a winfall from Mr. Mossadegh's tactics


How is it that nine years after end of world war II, Britain who had been bombed, had borrowed over 100 million for war damages from America, spent so lavishly on the coronation? Who really subsidized the British Coronation in 1953? It was the millions and millions of pounds in penalty that Iran paid to England for breaking the oil contract prematurely. Thanks to the British hero, Mossadegh, the oil contract was terminated prematurely. If the oil contract had been allowed to expire in 1963, then everything would have belonged to Iran - oil refinery, oil wells, etc.. as such in 1953, Mr. Mossadegh did the biggest favor to England. This coronation was a celebration of their renewed Imperial exploitation of Iran's oil. 

Mr. Mossadegh was and is and will always be a disgrace to Iran. 

How can these Britishers celebrate when people all over europe and in England were suffering? How selfish of these people. 

Also, note that their monarch is annointed by God to rule England. 


Filthy Rich Life of British Kings


Why aren't any of these mossadegh/socialist/commies commenting on the excessive expenditures on Royal Coronation? $6 million in 1953 is equivalent to $50 million today.Is it because they are friends of British but enemies of Iran?

Why are they not objecting to the lavish life of these Britisher billionaires? Why are they not cursing the monarchy of England for forcing our King, Reza Shah the Great into exile in 1941? Why are Iranians silent abou this heinous act /interference of British into Iran's politics? Why? Is there a double standard? Particularly since our Reza Shah the Great was a patriot and built Iran? Reza Shah was put on a boat and shipped to Africa and was murdered within 3 months. Not only that, Reza Shah left the country without any money. Yet, the British and their mossadegh servants disseminated blood libel that he stole millions. Shame on these mossadegh supporters. Shame on these bastards who continue to harm Iran. Expose these traitors to Iran. All of them must be hanged for treason, like the Britis hang their traitors. 

Did you know that one of the reasons these British anglosaxons destroyed our monarchy was so thtat they would be the oldest monarchy in the world? Prior to 1979, Iran was the oldest Monarchy in the world.
