In photos – the Queen’s accession to the throne

by | 6th, February 2012

TODAY, the Queen today marked the 60th anniversary of her accession to the throne. It’s the formal start of her Diamond Jubilee. Yippee! Sure. It was also the anniversary of the death of her father. The joy is marked with personal loss. Sixty years have passed. Anorak goes back to the day in photos. A young, attractive woman had accepted the call. One question: what does the Queen stand for? Personally and in public…what values does he uphold?
