Queen Elizabeth gets candid about her coronation

At the age of 11 the Queen said riding in the gold state coach was “horrible”

NO one will ever know whether the Queen consented to take part in tomorrow's much-anticipated BBC documentary about her coronation because of a mischievous desire to upstage The Crown, the acclaimed fictional drama charting the Royal family throughout her record-breaking reign.

Elizabeth II attending the Scripture Union's 150th anniversary service of celebration on December 6.

"You can't look down to read the speech, you have to take the speech up", she added.

Queen Elizabeth on the day of her coronation (gracefully avoiding any appearance of neck strain).

"Simply this: that you don't ask the Queen a direct question", Bruce told press at a recent screening of The Coronation.

She explained she chose to play dress up and mimic the daily routine of the queen to celebrate the second season of the Netflix hit, The Crown, which premiered last month.

That crown is placed on the table where she's talking to Bruce, who of course never touches it.

"It's only sprung on leather, not very comfortable".

The show notes that the coronation crown is studded with some of the prize pieces from the 23,000-stone crown jewels collection.

A large ruby in the crown is said to have been worn by King Henry V at the battle of Agincourt, and viewers can see where a hole was drilled in it to hold his plume.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has revealed the secrets of giving a speech while wearing a weighty crown, in unusually candid comments in a new documentary on her 1953 coronation and the symbolism of the crown jewels.

One of the few deviations from the solemn, military-style precision of that day came when a young boy helping carry the queen's train playfully lifted it for a moment and ducked under it.

He said: "They dug out this fresh, very virgin white chalk and they had to hide it with tarpaulins so when the aircraft flew over at night no clue was given to the German Luftwaffe that anything was going on".

As the queen handles the crown, she points to four pearls hanging underneath the arches, two of which are believed to have belonged to Mary, Queen of Scots and bought by Elizabeth I.
