This special display takes you behind the scenes of preparations to televise Queen Elizabeth II's coronation, revealed in photographs from the Daily Herald Archive.

Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne on 6 February 1952 and planning for the coronation began almost immediately. It was set for 2 June 1953, to leave an appropriate mourning period for the late King George VI and to complete all the detailed arrangements. It was at the Queen’s personal request that the whole coronation service was televised. All around the world, people could see Queen Elizabeth publicly undertake the Coronation Oath and be crowned.

Excitement built daily in the run up to the event, something that the newspapers were happy to cover in their pages. The Daily Herald was no exception, reporting on all aspects of the Coronation and its preparations. This has left a rich photographic archive of this momentous occasion, cared for by the National Science and Media Museum.
