“Coronation Day, 2 June 1953!  Do you remember it, the thrill of expectation and excitement that went through Britain and the Commonwealth? And the momentous day itself of biting winds and driving rain, followed by sunshine, the brass bands, the cannon-salutes, the seething crowds, the solemn pledges emanating from the Abbey, and the glitter of the golden coach?  Do you remember where you were and what you did and what you thought on that historic and enthralling day?
Paul Gallico has recorded the pageantry and the emotion of that event and combined it with the tenderest love story he has ever written, a story of the love of millions of Englishmen for their young Queen.”
