Queen Elizabeth Celebrates 60th AnniversaryBy: Amanda Crum - June 3, 2013
Queen Elizabeth has two big milestones to celebrate this year, as this month marks her Royal Majesty’s 60th anniversary on the throne and Prince William and Kate Middleton welcome their baby.
Elizabeth’s coronation took place in June of 1953, when she took the seat her father vacated. Last year, England celebrated with a Diamond Jubilee that included a concert at the palace, a derby, and a thousand boats which were part of a pageant on the River Thames. She’ll get another big party in July, which is around the time Will and Kate will become new parents.
