The coronation was held more than one year later because of the tradition of allowing an appropriate length of time to pass after a monarch dies before holding such festivals. It also gave the planning committees adequate time to make preparations for John Snagge And Howard Marshall - The Coronation Of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Record 2 ceremony.
Celebrations took place across the Commonwealth realms and a commemorative medal was issued. It was the first British coronation to be fully televised; television cameras had not been allowed inside the abbey during her father's coronation in Elizabeth's was the fourth and last British coronation of the 20th century.
The one-day ceremony took 14 months of preparation: the The Prisoner - Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast meeting of the Coronation Commission was in April under the chairmanship of the Queen's husband, Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
Many physical preparations and decorations along the route were the responsibility of David EcclesMinister of Works. The committees involved high commissioners from other Commonwealth realms, reflecting the international nature of the coronation; however, officials from other Commonwealth realms declined invitations to participate in the event because the governments of those countries considered the ceremony to be a religious rite unique to Britain.

Elizabeth rehearsed for the occasion with her maids of honour. A sheet was used in place of the velvet train, and a formation of chairs stood in for the carriage. She also wore the Imperial State Crown while going about her daily business — at her desk, during tea, and while reading a newspaper — so that she could become accustomed to its feel and weight.
Elizabeth's grandmother Queen Mary had died on 24 Marchhaving stated in her will that her death should not affect the planning of the coronation, and the event went ahead as scheduled. The Coronation ceremony of Elizabeth II followed a similar pattern to the coronations of the kings and queens before her, being held in Westminster Abbey, and involving the peerage and clergy.
However, for the new Queen, several parts of the ceremony were markedly different. Millions across Britain watched the coronation live on the BBC Television Serviceand many purchased or rented television sets for Gamele - Various - Promo Studeni 2014 event.
The coronation of the Queen was the first to be televised in full; the BBC's cameras had not been allowed inside Westminster Abbey for her father's coronation inand had covered only the procession outside.

In all, three such flights were made as the coronation proceeded, with the first and second Canberras taking the second and third batches of film to Montreal respectively. US networks NBC and CBS made André Kostelanetz And His Orchestra - Oklahoma - Selection (Shellac) arrangements to have films flown in relays back to the United States for same-day broadcast, but used slower propeller-driven aircraft.
The struggling ABC network arranged to re-transmit the CBC broadcast taking the on-the-air signal from the CBC's Toronto station and feeding the network from ABC's affiliate in Buffalo, New Yorkas a result, beat the other two networks to air by more than 90 minutes at considerably lower cost.

In the lengthy oath, the Queen swore to govern each of her countries according to their respective laws and customs, to mete out law and justice with mercy, to uphold Protestantism in the United Kingdom and protect the Church of England and preserve its bishops and clergy.
She proceeded to the altar where she stated, "The things which I have here promised, I will perform, and keep. So help me God", before kissing the Bible and putting the royal sign-manual to the oath as the Bible was returned to the Dean of Westminster. Our gracious Queen: to keep your John Snagge And Howard Marshall - The Coronation Of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Record 2 ever mindful of the law and the Ven Que Te Llamo - Junco - Vivir De Amor of God as the Rule for the whole life and government of Christian Princes, we present you with this Book, the most valuable thing that this world affords.
Elizabeth returned the book to Pitt-Watson, who placed it back with the Dean of Westminster. The communion service was then conducted, involving prayers by both the clergy and Elizabeth, Fisher asking, "O God Grant unto this thy servant Elizabeth, our Queen, the spirit of wisdom and government, that being devoted unto thee with her whole heart, she may so wisely govern, that in her time thy Church may be in safety, and Christian devotion may continue in peace", before reading various excerpts from the First Epistle of PeterPsalms, and the Gospel of Matthew.
There, Fisher, assisted by the Dean of Westminster, made a cross on the Queen's forehead with holy oil made from the same base as had been used in the coronation of her father. From the altar, the Dean passed to the Lord Great Chamberlain the spurswhich were presented to the Queen and then placed back on the altar. The Sword of State was then handed to Elizabeth, who, after a prayer was uttered by Fisher, placed it herself on the altar, and the peer who had been previously holding it took it back again after paying a sum of shillings.

When it came to choosing the music, tradition required that Handel's " Zadok the Priest " and Parry's " I was glad " were included amongst the anthems.
Other choral works included were the 16th century "Rejoice in the Lord alway" and Samuel Sebastian Wesley 's "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace". Another tradition was that new work be commissioned from the leading composers of the day: Ralph Vaughan Williams composed a new motet "O Taste and See", William Walton composed a setting for the " Te Deum ", and the Canadian composer Healey Willan wrote an anthem "O Lord our Governor". Benjamin Britten had agreed to compose a piece, but he caught influenza and then had to deal with flooding at Aldeburghso nothing was forthcoming.
This proved controversial and was not included in the programme until the Queen had been consulted and found to be in favour; Vaughan Williams wrote an elaborate arrangement of the traditional Scottish metrical psalm" Old th ", which included military trumpet fanfares  and was sung before the communion.
