The Coronation

The Queen to make rare TV appearance in BBC documentary

The Coronation explores the story of the Crown Jewels, revealing to a new generation the ancient ceremony for which they are used. 

As part of the Royal Collection Season on the BBC, the hour-long programme also sees the monarch discuss the coronation of her father, George VI, which she watched in 1937.

“I’ve seen one coronation, and been the recipient in the other, which is pretty remarkable,” she says.
