(Na het plotselinge overlijden van haar vader Koning George VI, wordt Elizabeth II op 2 juni 1953 op 26-jarige leeftijd in Westminster Abbey gekroond tot Koningin. De kroning in het Westminster Abbey wordt bijgewoond door meer dan 7.500 mensen en de ceremonie, waar Elizabeth de St.-Edwardskroon en de scepter krijgt wordt live uitgezonden op televisie. Gedurende 6,5 uur worden liefst 21 camera’s ingezet om een zo’n mooi mogelijk plaatje de huiskamers in te brengen. Exacte cijfers zijn niet bekend, maar gissingen uit die tijd spreken over rond de 100.000 gezinnen die in Frankrijk, Nederland en Duitsland naar de plechtigheid zouden hebben gekeken. De vraag ligt voor de hand waarom er wel in die landen wordt gekeken en niet in het tussenliggende België. Een antwoord op die vraag is snel gegeven, want België is technisch nog helemaal niet klaar voor het uitzenden dan wel ontvangen van televisiesignalen. De introductie van de televisie als medium heeft daar namelijk nog niet plaats gevonden.)
