Queen Elizabeth: 'Unwieldy' Crown Could Break Your Neck Off

Queen Elizabeth: 'Unwieldy' Crown Could Break Your Neck Off

It was buried below a secret exit on the orders of King George VI to prevent the jewels falling into Nazi hands.

The Queen, who spent the war years at Windsor Castle for her safety, did not know the full details of the story until told by royal commentator Alastair Bruce, who presents the documentary due to be screened on Sunday. "I think he's rather handsome, ' the queen tells her husband. Telling her seemed strangely odd".

Morshead's documents describe how a hole was dug in chalk earth and two chambers with steel doors were created.

And the trap door used to access the secret area where the artefacts were stored still exists today.

The Queen rarely gives televised interviews, but the programme comes amid a revolution of the monarchy over the past 12 months, whereby the younger senior royal members have made regular TV appearances and her grandson Prince Harry is set to Wednesday actress and divorcee Meghan Markle, who is older than him and a woman of colour.

"You have to keep your head very still", Bruce said to the Queen while looking at the Imperial State Crown and watching footage of the Coronation in 1953.




It also features a gemstone known as the Black Prince's Ruby, believed to have been worn by Henry V in his helmet at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415. "Otherwise, they're quite important things". "Because if you did your neck would break, it would fall off", she says.

In the hour-long program "The Coronation", Queen Elizabeth gives viewers her personal account of the memorable event that took place 65 years ago, sharing just what it was like to be in her shoes.

"'The Crown" shows the queen sipping her tea while watching the evangelist on television preach to a packed stadium. But once you put it on, it stays.

"But by welcoming us and having me preach on several occasions to the royal family at Windsor and Sandringham, she has gone out of her way to be quietly supportive of our mission", Graham said. [While] wearing regalia-that was designed for your forebear King Charles II-in 1661, including a crown that is five pounds in weight.:I just want you to imagine laying out five pounds of sugar bags and putting that on your head, but imagine it's a hat that is made to be too big for you. "They hadn't thought of that".

"I think what's so delightful is the queen had absolutely no idea this had happened", Bruce said.

The British sovereign does not concede interviews to the press, but spoke exclusively to the BBC for the recording of "The Coronation", a documentary on the British Crown jewels and the other regalia - scheduled for broadcast this Sunday - of which brief extracts were made available on Friday, Efe news agency reported.
