This program commemorated the coronation of Elizabeth Windsor, as Queen Elizabeth II of England, on June 2, 1953. At the same ceremony, she assumed the title of ‘Sovereign’ of most Commonwealth nations. To this day, the Queen holds sixteen regnal titles and dozens of honorifics.

The program features photos of the Royal Family, poems, songs, an overview of coronation procedures, and a history of monarchal and imperial coronations in Britain. It comes to us as part of the Barbara Denison collection. Ms. Denison was present at the coronation and was a lifelong collector of Royal Family memorabilia.
