Heavy weighs the crown, reveals Queen

Heavy weighs the crown, reveals Queen

She was a teen at that time, but it wasn't until recently that she learned the truth, during the filming of a BBC documentary.

Speaking for the first time about her coronation 65 years ago, Queen Elizabeth has revealed how uncomfortable riding in her golden carriage to the ceremony was and how wearing the Imperial State Crown risked "breaking your neck". Oh, and follow a rule that you must stop eating as soon as your fam's matriarch has decided she's full.

She explained she made a decision to play dress up and mimic the daily routine of the queen to celebrate the second season of the Netflix hit, The Crown, which premiered last month.

"Because if you did [look down] your neck would break and [the crown] would fall off", the queen said, smiling as she tilted her head downwards.

"So there are some disadvantages to crowns, but otherwise they're quite important things".

This comes after the Queen called her coach ride to her coronation "horrible". The ornate gold carriage has been used for every coronation since 1066.

"It's not meant for traveling in at all".

"Fortunately, my father and I have about the same sort of shaped head", she said in a clip from the documentary. "It's only sprung on leather. Not very comfortable", she said.

In the documentary, Elizabeth is talking about the crown her father, King George, wore at his 1937 coronation, which was also the same one she wore to hers in June 1953. The horses couldn't possibly go any faster.

The British monarch joked that her ancestor's pearls are "not very happy now" and have been "hanging out for years, " adding: "The trouble is that pearls are sort of live things, and they need warming". "I've seen one coronation and been the recipient in the other, which is pretty remarkable".

"The only word I can come up with is medicinal, like cough syrup", she said.

The Coronation is part of the Royal Collection Season on BBC and will air this Sunday.
