2012 saw the Diamond Jubilee of the Queen. That was 60 years after the Queen began to rule the country.
Today is the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation. That is the crowning ceremony that officially welcomes the Queen onto the throne.
60 year’s ago the Queen arrived at Westminster Abbey, exited her coach and donned the crown jewels!
It also led to the creation of the pretty amazing Coronation Chicken. Which is a type of curried chicken.
