The Accession of Queen Elizabeth II

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary Windsor) acceded to the throne on the 6th February 1952. The 25 year old Princess was staying at Treetops Lodge in Kenya, which rests in tree branches overlooking a large area of jungle, when she heard of her father’s death and her own accession. Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip were on the way to a Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand when she received the news that King George VI had died in his sleep at Sandringham. She returned home immediately.

For the first time Britain had three Queens living at the same time: Queen Elizabeth II, her Mother (who became known as The Queen Mother to avoid confusion) and Queen Mary, Elizabeth’s Grandmother who sadly died before Queen Elizabeth’s formal Coronation. The Coronation took place at Westminster Abbey on 2nd June of the following year.

The Diamond Jubilee marks the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the throne of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. She also became Head of the Commonwealth and Queen of Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Queen Victoria is the only other British Monarch to date to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee.

A small number of these covers have been personally signed by Baroness Willoughby de Eresby. Baroness Willoughby is the late daughter of the 3rd Earl of Ancaster, and served as a train bearer and Maid of Honour to Elizabeth II during the 1953 Coronation, and therefore makes her the perfect signature for this fantastic cover.
