Unveiling the Cost of Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation

Queen Elizabeth's death was a very important event that marked the end of a long period of time. She died at the age of 96 on September 8, 2022, at Balmoral Castle, United Kingdom. 

During her lifetime, she was the queen of 32 different countries and served as the leader of 15 countries at the time of her passing.

She was the British monarch for 70 years and 214 days, which is the longest reign of any British monarch and the longest reign of any female monarch that has been in history. 

When Elizabeth had her coronation on June 2, 1953, it was estimated to cost around £43 million, which is approximately $54 million when adjusted for inflation in today's money.

The coronation event lasted for over three hours and was broadcast on television, giving the public a chance to celebrate the crowning of their new queen.

At the time Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953, Great Britain was still recovering from the financial strain of World War II.The prime minister at the time, Winston Churchill, agreed to spend £1.5 million (which is about £50 million in today's money) on the coronation.

At that time, Europe was in the process of rebuilding, and the queen symbolised a new era for the monarchy. The event itself was a grand spectacle that captured the attention of many people.
