The Queens Coronation: Behind Closed Doors

The Queens Coronation: Behind Closed Doors
£7.49  

The Coronation in 1953 appeared to be a glittering triumph for the House of Windsor. But behind the scenes there was a story of rivalry at the highest level. In this High Society special well discover that Prince Philip was at odds with the Queen Mother and the royal establishment over his desire to modernise the monarchy, and that the old Queen was uncomfortable with her daughters sudden rise to power. Elizabeth was caught between her husband, who wanted to create a more extrovert, modern image for the monarchy, and the traditionalists in the royal household, who lived in an archaic, unchanging world. This documentary with dramatised excerpts and interviews with leading historians examines how Elizabeth eventually agreed to televise the full coronation ceremony inside Westminster Abbey, against the initial advice of Prime Minister Winston Churchill and the Cabinet. A decision hotly contested by her advisors, it marked a dramatic change in how the monarchy communicated to the public. Unwittingly, innocently, the Queen had given a huge helping hand to the medium that would do so much to undermine her family in later years.
