Today marks the 67th Anniversary of Her Majesty The Queen's Coronation! Some facts about the Coronation: 1. It was the first Coronation service to be televised and the first major worldwide BBC television broadcast. Some estimates say that 27 million people watched the ceremony and 11 million listened on the radio. 2. The Coronation was attended by 8,251 guests, including the peerage and dignitaries from around the world. 3. The ceremony was just short of 3 hours long, beginning at 11:15 a.m. and ending at 2:00 p.m. 4. In order to fit the thousands of guests in an orderly fashion, the doors opened at 6:00 a.m. for guests to start arriving. Because people were stuck inside for so long, many brought sustenance. Peers were said to have used their coronets to conceal snacks. 5. The Queen rode to Westminster Abbey in the Gold State Coach. It has only been used twice since then – for the Silver and Golden Jubilees. 6. The Coronation service had six parts: the recognition, the oath, the anointing, the investiture (which includes the crowning), the enthronement, and the homage. 7. The service is derived from the one used in 973 to crown King Edgar and was performed in Latin until the coronation of Elizabeth I. 8. Unlike the rest of the ceremony, the anointing was neither photographed nor televised. 9. The most significant object used during the Coronation is St. Edward's Crown, made in 1661. The gold crown is set with multiple types of stones including sapphire, amethyst, tourmaline, citrine, and topaz. It weighs 4.9 pounds. 10. Other items from the Crown Jewels that played a big role in the Coronation ceremony are the Orb, the Armills, the Coronation ring, the Sword of Offering, the Sceptre with Dove and the Sceptre with Cross. 11. During her return to Buckingham Palace, The Queen wore the Imperial State Crown. The crown was adjusted before the Coronation with the head size reduced and the arches lowered to make it more feminine for Her Majesty. 12. The return route took The Queen through London so she could be seen by as many on the streets as possible. 13. Once back at the palace, Her Majesty appeared with her family on the balcony to wave to the cheering crowds.
Izvor blizak kraljici za strane medije ispričao je da je još od 1955., kraljica vjerna luksuznoj francuskoj kompaniji za njegu kože i kose „Clarins“. Toliko je bila oduševljena ovim proizvodima da je naručila da za nju naprave posebnu, nježnu nijansu ruža, koju od tada nosi prilikom svakog pojavljivanja. Iako se nijansa drži u tajnosti, jer je rezervisana za kraljicu, riječ je o kozmetičkoj kući „Elizabeth Arden“.

Kada su njega noktiju i manikir u pitanju, kraljica Elizabeta je još od 1989., vijerna čuvenom „Essie“ brendu. Njena omiljena nijansa je „Ballet slippers“, koju često koristi i Meghan Markl. Ova nježna ružičasta boja potpuno je u skladu s beauty pravilima i kodeksom oblačenja na dvoru, a šuška se kako je Essie Weingarten kraljici obezbjedila doživotne zalihe.
Kada je o parfemima riječ kraljica bira „White rose“ brenda „Floris“, a izvori navode da ga kraljica posvećeno koristi već dvadeset godina.
Očigledno je da kraljica Elizabetha ne voli mnogo da eksperimentiše kada je ljepota u pitanju i da je vjerna svojim beauty favoritima. Ipak, posebno je vezana za svoju četku za kosu, koju proizvodi britanska kompanija „Kent“, koja postoji od davne 1777. godine. Riječ je o četki izrađenoj od kvalitetnog drveta i prirodne dlake.
‒ Ne želi da kroz njenu kosu prođe nijedan drugi češalj. Opsjednuta je ovim četkama za kosu i u svojoj kolekciji ima deset različitih modela ‒ rekao je izvor.
