Our blog is having a rest for a couple of weeks, so will be back in July with lots of interesting and exciting things to tell you.


Funeral Flowers

Diamond Jubilee

Posted Sat 02 Jun 2012

On Wednesday, 6 February 1952, Princess Elizabeth received the news of her father’s death and her own accession to the throne, while staying in a remote part of Kenya. Sadly her tour had to be abandoned, and the young Princess flew back to Britain as Queen. She was greeted by Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the airport, and her Coronation took place the following year in Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953.
