    George VI was forced to buy from Edward the royal residences of Balmoral Castle and Sandringham House, as these were private properties and did not pass to him automatically. Three days after his accession, on his 41st birthday, he invested his wife, the new queen consort , with the Order of the Garter .

    The state funeral of George VI, King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland took place on 15 February 1952. George VI died in the early morning of 6 February at Sandringham House in Norfolk. A period of national mourning commenced and his daughter, Elizabeth II was proclaimed the new monarch by the Accession Council. George VI's coffin lay in St Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham until 11 February when it was carried, in procession, to the nearby Wolferton railway station. T

    George VI had undergone a lung operation in September 1951 from which he never fully recovered. He died in his sleep at Sandringham House, Norfolk on 6 February 1952 at the age of 56. He was discovered by his valet at 7.30 am and the news was conveyed to Buckingham Palace by telephone, using the code "Hyde Park Corner" to avoid alerting switchboard operators to the news. The news was not broken to the wider world until 11.15 am when BBC newsreader John Snagge read the words "It is with the great

    The body of George VI was placed in a coffin made from oak grown on the Sandringham estate. The coffin was laid in St Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham where the king had worshipped while on the estate. On 11 February the coffin, draped in the Royal Standard on top of which his wife Queen Elizabeth had laid a wreath of flowers, was carried from the church. The coffin was placed onto a gun carriage of the Kings' Troop Royal Horse Artillery for its journey to the nearby Wolferton railway station.

    Before arrival in London the Imperial State Crown was placed, on a cushion, on top of the coffin. The coffin was carried from the train by eight Grenadier Guards and placed onto a green-painted gun carriage, the same as had been used for the funeral procession of George V. Elizabeth II, Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret followed the coffin on foot to the outside of the station and then boarded a car to travel to meet Queen Mary at Buckingham Palace. The King's coffin was drawn in procession

    The funeral of George VI took place on 15 February. Mourners, including representatives of foreign governments, were assembled outside Westminster Hall by 8.15 am. The American representative was Secretary of State Dean Acheson. The Belgian King Baudouin refused to attend, believed to be on the advice of his father, Leopold III, who held a grudge against the British prime minister Winston Churchill. Churchill had criticised Leopold for remaining in Nazi-occupied Belgium during the Second World W

    In January 1936, King George V died and his eldest son, Edward VIII, succeeded him as king-emperor of the British Empire. He was unmarried at that time, but the American socialite, Wallis Simpson, had accompanied him on numerous social occasions in years leading up to 1936; she was married to the shipping executive Ernest Aldrich Simpson and had previously been divorced. The relationship had not been reported in the British press, but was receiving considerable media attention in the United S...

    Coronation ceremony

    Although the reign of the British monarch begins on his or her succession to the throne, the coronation service marks their formal investiture. In 1937, the ceremony was organised by a Coronation Committee, established by the Privy Council and chaired by the Lord President of the Council, a political appointment; its central component, the Executive Committee, was chaired by the Duke of Norfolk, who inherited the office of Earl Marshal, which carries with it, by convention, the responsibility...


    The Coronation Committee had been delayed when it met for the first time on 24 June 1936: Ramsay MacDonald, the Lord President of the Council, met the Duke of Norfolk to discuss the proceedings; MacDonald would chair the Coronation Committee as a whole, and the Duke would chair the Executive Committee. While Edward VIII was away, cruising on the Nahlin with Wallis Simpson, his brother, Albert, Duke of York (the future George VI) sat in his place on the committees. Edward VIII had initially be...

    Archbishop of Canterbury

    Although the Executive Committee was chaired by the Earl Marshal, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Cosmo Lang, was also a driving force behind the preparations for the 1937 coronation; and many of the decisions about the order of service were made by or with him. He was an ex officio member of both the Executive Committee and the Coronation Committee, which dealt with the detail and, as such, he attended all of the rehearsals. He tended to take a leading role in the planning process, becoming a...


    The coronation cost £454,000, which was more than three times the cost of the 1911 ceremony. This cost included the construction of the annexe, which was built as a temporary add-on at the entrance of the abbey for each coronation. In previous years, it had taken the form of an imitation Gothic entrance, but, as a remnant of Edward VIII's modernising attitude, it was now an art-deco design, adorned with stylised heraldic beasts and tapestries belonging to the Duke of Buccleuch. For each coron...

    The ceremony was attended by the King's and Queen's daughters, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, as well as by the King's mother, the dowager Queen Mary. Members of the extended Royal Family attended and all peer and members of parliament were invited. Leading colonial administrators, ambassadors, Indian Princes and Premiers of the Dominions were also on the guest list. Working-class representatives included representatives of the trade unions and co-operative societies,while native Africans were allowed to attend for the first time. The abbey's doors were closed to guests at 8.30 on the morning of the coronation. The official record of the ceremonial, published in the London Gazette, describes the seating plan: "The Lords Spiritual were seated on the North side of the Area, or Sacrarium, the Lords Temporal in the South Transept, and the Dowager Peeresses and Peeresses in the North Transept."

    Before the coronation ceremony begins, there is traditionally a lengthy procession to the abbey. The procession left Buckingham Palace and headed up The Mall, though Admiralty Arch, and down Whitehall, before entering Westminster Abbey. The first to take part in the procession were lesser members and relatives of the Royal Family and the representatives of foreign royalty and heads of state; they departed Buckingham Palace by car between 08:40 and 08:45 and arrived at the abbey ten minutes later; British and Dominion prime ministers followed half an hour later, leaving at 09:15. At 09:49, members of the Royal Family left the palace (Queen Mary's carriage left Marlborough House shortly afterwards at 10:13). The King and Queen then travelled in the Gold State Coach from Buckingham Palace at 10:43; their procession was by far the longest and included numerous military contingents and delegates from Britain, the Dominions, and the colonies, as well as members of the War Office, the Army...

    Minor royals and foreign representatives

    The first to arrive in procession were the royals and foreign representatives; they arrived ten minutes after departing the palace. The royal members were led in by two officers of arms—the Bluemantle Pursuivant (R.P. Graham-Vivian) and the Portcullis Pursuivant (A.R. Wagner)—followed by two gentlemen ushers (Captain Humphrey Lloyd and Colonel Vivian Gabriel), and were led to their seats in the royal gallery. The foreign royal representatives in attendance were: 1. Prince Chichibu and Princes...


    Following tradition dating back to the reign of King Charles II, the regalia were brought to the Deanery of Westminster the night before the coronation. Staff started working at 4 a.m., while guests began arriving two hours later. The Imperial State Crown had been remade for the occasion by the Crown Jewellers, Garrard & Co. Queen Elizabeth's crown was new and made from platinum; it featured the Koh-i-Noor diamond from the crown of Queen Mary. Queen Elizabeth wore a gown made of silk satin, w...

    Entrance of the Royal Family

    Led by two officers of arms—the Rouge Croix Pursuivant and the Rouge Dragon Pursuivant—and two gentlemen ushers (Rear-Admiral Arthur Bromley and Lieutenant-Colonel Henry De Satgé), the senior members of the Royal Family arrived at 10:15 and formed their procession into the abbey. The Princess Royal was flanked by The Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret, and they were followed by the Duchesses of Gloucester and Kent and then, in pairs, Prince and Princess Arthur of Connaught; Princess Alice, Cou...

    The coronation service itself began once the procession into the abbey was over and the King and Queen were seated. Beginning with the recognition, the King then took an oath and was anointed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, before being crowned king. As a remnant of the coronation ceremony's feudal origins, the King then received homage from the peers and peeresses of the realm in attendance. There were few departures from the services conducted at previous coronations. Efforts were made to shorten the lengthy proceedings: the litany was sung during the regalia procession before the start of the service, and the sermon was omitted entirely. Even so, the service itself lasted for two and a half hours,excluding the preliminary processions.

    As in the 1902 and 1911 events, the coronation was followed by a procession through London's streets from Westminster Abbey to the Royal residence, allowing the public to view the new king and queen. In 1937, this return route was extended significantly. From Westminster Abbey, it passed around Parliament Square and up the Victoria Embankment (where 40,000 schoolchildren were waiting) and then along Northumberland Avenue, into Trafalgar Square, up Cockspur Street through to Pall Mall; from there, the procession went up St James' Street, joining Piccadilly, then up Regent Street, then west along Oxford Street, before turning past Marble Arch and then down East Carriage Road, alongside Hyde Park; from there, the procession passed through Hyde Park Corner and then through Wellington Arch, on to Constitution Hilland then back into Buckingham Palace. The progression included a large number of military personnel from across the Empire. There were representative detachments from all the el...

    The musical director for the service was Ernest Bullock, who was organist and Master of the Choristers at Westminster Abbey, in consultation with the Master of the King's Musick, Henry Walford Davies. The Abbey choir was supplemented by choirs from the Chapel Royal, St Paul's Cathedral, St George's Chapel, Windsor and the Temple Church. An orchestra composed of musicians from London's main orchestras was conducted by Adrian Boult. Tradition demanded the inclusion of George Frederick Handel's Zadok the Priest (1727) and Hubert Parry's I was glad (1902). New work written for the occasion included Confortare (Be strong and play the Man) by Walford Davies and the Festival Te Deum in F Major by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Perhaps the best known work from the 1937 coronation is Crown Imperial, an orchestral march by William Walton. It was the desire of Bullock and Davies that the programme should include music from 'Tudor times to the present day' and so new pieces were composed by Arnold Bax...

    Despite a number of hitches, described above, the coronation ran relatively smoothly. It has been somewhat overshadowed in history by the larger Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953; the Abbey's sacrist, Jocelyn Perkins, said that the 1953 event was "out and away the most impressive" of the 1953, 1937 and 1911 coronations. Nonetheless, a number of those present, the King included, commented privately on the spirituality of the ceremony. Despite recalling it as being "inordinately long" and remembering how heavy the crown and robes were, the Queen said that it was "wonderful and there is a great sense of offering oneself".The King wrote to Lang thanking him for his support and, although he said it was an "ordeal", he also wrote that "I felt I was being helped all the time by Someone Else as you said I would".


    The Coronation ceremony itself was not televised, but it was the first coronation service to be broadcast on radio; 28 microphones were placed around the Abbey to capture the music and speech. There was no commentary, but the Reverend Frederic Iremonger, Director of Religion at the BBC and Honorary Chaplain to the King, read out the rubrics or written directions from the service book from a seat high in the triforium over Saint Edward's Chapel. During the most sacred parts of the service, the...


    The procession was broadcast on the BBC Television Service, which had only been operating since the previous November. Several tons of television cables, measuring 8 miles (13 km), were laid across central London, so that the images from three Emitron television cameras could be sent to the transmission centre at Alexandra Palace. Commentary was by Frederick Grisewood, who was with the cameras at Hyde Park Corner. The coverage of the procession is regarded as being the BBC's first outside bro...


    The coronation service of George VI was the first to be filmed; the 40 camera crew inside the Abbey were required to wear evening dress. It was later shown in edited form as a newsreel in cinemas across the British Empire. The service was later broadcast from these recordings, with the authorities censoring only one small section: a clip of Queen Mary wiping a tear from her eye.

    George was disappointed in Edward's failure to settle down in life and appalled by his many affairs with married women. In contrast, he was fond of his second son, Prince Albert (later George VI), and doted on his eldest granddaughter, Princess Elizabeth; he nicknamed her "Lilibet", and she affectionately called him "Grandpa England".

    Raja George VI lahir di York Cottage, tepatnya di Pemukiman Sandringham, Norfolk, saat masa kekuasaan nenek buyutnya Ratu Victoria. Ayahnya adalah Pangeran George, Adipati York (kemudian menjadi Raja George V), yang merupakan anak kedua yang masih hidup dari Pangeran dan Putri Wales (kemudian menjadi Raja Edward VII dan Ratu Alexandra). Ibunya adalah Permaisuri Adipati York (kemudian menjadi Ratu Mary), yang merupakan anak tertua dan anak perempuan satu-satunya dari Francis, Adipati Teck, dan Mary Adelaide, Permaisuri Adipati Teck. Tanggal kelahirannya di 14 Desember 1895, adalah peringatan 34 tahun meninggalnya kakek buyutnya, Albert dari Saxe-Coburg dan Gotha. Tidak yakin atas reaksi Ratu Victoria dalam menerima kabar ini karena kabar bahagia terjadi bersamaan dengan peringatan berkabung, Pangeran Wales menulis kepada Adipati York bahwa keadaan ratu agak tertekan. Dua hari kemudian, ia mengirim surat lagi yang berisi bahwa ia menyarakan pada Adipati York untuk mengajukan pada ratu...

    Pada tahun 1909, Albert menjalani pendidikan di Kolese Angkatan Laut Kerajaan Inggris Osborne, sebagai kadet angkatan laut. Pada tahun 1911 ia berada pada urutan paling bawah dalam ujian akhirnya, namun begitu ia tetap melanjutkan pendidikan ke Kolese Angkatan Laut Kerajaan Inggris Dartmouth.Ketika kakeknya, Raja Edward VII, meninggal pada tahun 1910, ayahnya naik takhta menjadi Raja George V. Edward kemudiaan menjadi Pangeran Wales, dan Albert naik tingkat ke posisi ke-2 dalam garis suksesi takhta. Albert melewati 6 bulan pertama dari tahun 1913 di kapal pelatihan HMS Cumberland di kawasan Hindia Barat dan pantai timur Kanada. Ia kemudian menjadi perwira muda di kapal HMS Collingwood pada 15 September 1913. Ia menjalani tiga bulan di perairan Mediterania, namun tidak pernah bisa mengatasi mabuk lautnya. Tiga minggu setelah pecahnya Perang Dunia I ia dievakuasi secara medis menuju Aberdeen, dimana disana ia menjalani operasi pengangkatan usus buntu yang dilakukan oleh Sir John Marno...

    Pada saat itu seorang anggota keluarga kerajaan diharapkan untuk menikahi seseorang yang juga dari kalangan kerajaan, maka hal ini menjadi halangan bagi Albert untuk memiliki kebebasan dalam memilih calon istri. Pada April 1920, Albert harus terpaksa menghentikan niatnya untuk mendekati sosialita Australia Lady Loughborough yang sudah menikah, dengan janji dari raja akan diberikan gelar Adipati York. Pada tahun yang sama ia bertemu dengan Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, anak bungsu dari Earl Strathmore dan Kinghorne. Ia lalu memutuskan untuk menikahinya. Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon menolak lamaran Pangeran Albert dua kali pada tahun 1921 dan 1922, karena ia tidak mau kebebasan yang ia miliki hilang kala menjadi keluarga kerajaan.Setelah hubungan yang rumit dan berlarut-larut akhirnya Elizabeth bersedia untuk dinikahi Albert. Mereka menikah pada 26 April 1923 di Westminster Abbey. Pernikahan Albert yang tidak dilakukan dengan seseorang dari kalangan kelahiran kerajaan merupakan suatu tanda...

    Raja George V memiliki kekhawatiran yang parah mengenai putra mahkotanya Pangeran Edward, ia berkata "Setelah aku meninggal, anak ini (Edward) akan menghancurkan dirinya sendiri dalam dua belas bulan" dan "Aku berdoa pada Tuhan agar anak tertuaku tidak akan pernah menikah dan tidak ada halangan untuk Bertie dan Lilibet menuju takhta." Pada 20 Januari 1936, George V meninggal dunia dan Edward menggantikannya sebagai raja dengan nama Raja Edward VIII. Dalam ritual Penjagaan Para Pangeran, Pangeran Albert dan ketiga saudaranya (sang raja baru, Pangeran Henry, Adipati Gloucester, dan Pangeran George, Adipati Kent) bergantian berdiri disamping jasad ayah mereka dalam peti tertutup saat pembaringan kenegaraan, di Istana Westminster. Karena Edward saat itu belum menikah dan tidak memiliki anak, maka Albert menjadi pewaris takhta. Kurang dari setahun kemudian, pada 11 Desember 1936, Edward turun takhta karena ingin menikahi, Wallis Simpson, yang pernah cerai dari suami pertamanya dan sedang...

    Albert menggunakan nama regnal "George VI" untuk mempertegas keberlanjutan dari ayahnya dan untuk memperbaiki kepercayaan diri kerajaan. Awal kekuasaan George VI diawali dengan pertanyaan mengenai pendahulunya, mengenai gelar, gaya dan posisinya yang belum mendapat kepastian. Edward disebut sebagai "Yang Mulia Kerajaan Pangeran Edward" dalam siaran turun takhtanya, namun George VI merasa bahwa dengan turun takhta dan meninggalkan kekuasaan, Edward telah kehilangan hak untuk menyandang gelar dan gaya kerajaan termasuk "Yang Mulia Kerajaan". Untuk mengatasi masalah ini, langkah pertama yang dilakukan George sebagai raja adalah memberi kakaknya tersebut gelar "Adipati Windsor" dengan gaya "Yang Mulia Kerajaan", namun dibuat juga surat paten mengenai pembentukan kadipaten ini dimana isinya mencegah pemilik gelar Adipati Windsor memberikan gelar kepada istri dan anak-anaknya. Sehingga, istri dan anak-anak Adipati Windsor tidak berhak atas gelar kerajaan. George VI dipaksa untuk membeli p...

    Pada September 1939, Kerajaan Britania Raya dan para Dominionnya kecuali Irlandia mendeklarasikan perang terhadap Jerman Nazi. Raja George VI dan permaisurinya memutuskan untuk tetap tinggal di London, meskipun Jerman melakukan serangan bom. Mereka secara resmi tinggal di Istana Buckingham selama perang, walaupun mereka biasanya menghabiskan malam di Kastil Windsor. Malam pertama the Blitz di London pada 7 September 1940, membunuh lebih dari seribu warga sipil, kebanyakan di kawasan East End. Pada 13 September, Raja dan Ratu nyaris terbunuh kala dua bom Jerman mendarat di halaman Istana Buckingham saat mereka berasa disana. Dalam nada menantang, Ratu berkata: "Aku bersyukur kami telah dibom. Hal ini membuatku merasa kami bisa melihat East End di depan mata kami." Keluarga kerajaan digambarkan berbagi bahaya dan kesusahan yang sama dengan seluruh negeri. Mereka tunduk pada aturan penjatahan yang ditetapkan pemerintah, dan Ibu Negara Amerika Serikat Eleanor Roosevelt berkomentar menge...

    Masa kekuasaan Raja George VI menjadi saksi proses pembubaran Imperium Britania. Dalam Statuta Westminster 1931 telah dijabarkan perubahan dari Dominion menjadi beberapa negara-negara berdaulat yang terpisah. Proses transformasi dari sebuah imperium menjadi asosiasi negara-negara independen yang dikenal dengan nama Persemakmuran, dimulai sejak berakhirnya Perang Dunia II. Pada masa pemerintahan Perdana Menteri Clement Attlee, India Britania menjadi dua dominion independen India dan Pakistan pada 1947. George menanggalkan gelar Kaisar India, dan menjadi Raja India dan Raja Pakistan. Pada tahun 1950 ia berhenti menjadi Raja India ketika negara tersebut berubah menjadi republik di dalam Persemakmuran dan menjadikannya memiliki jabatan baru sebagai Kepala Persemakmuran; George tetap menjadi Raja Pakistan hingga kematiannya. Beberapa negara meninggalkan persemakmuran seperti Burma pada Januari 1948, Palestina (yang terbagi menjadi Israeldan sebuah negara Arab) pada Mei 1948 dan Republik...

    Tekanan yang dialami saat perang berpengaruh terhadap kesehatan Raja, hal ini diperparah dengan kebiasaannya sebagai perokok berat mengakibatkan berkembangnya kanker paru-paru dan beberapa penyakit lainnya, seperti arteriosklerosis dan penyakit Buerger. Sebuah tur kerajaan yang dijadwalkan menuju Australia dan Selandia Baru ditunda karena Raja menderita penyumbatan pembuluh darah di kaki kanannya, yang dapat mengakibatkan diamputasinya kaki kanan Raja. Hal ini diatasi dengan prosedur operasiyang benar pada Maret 1949. Anak sulungnya, Elizabeth, sebagai pewaris takhta, mengambil alih tugas kerajaan saat kesehatan ayahnya mulai menurun. Tur yang sempat tertunda ditata kembali dan Elizabeth bersama suaminya, Adipati Edinburgh, menggantikan posisi Raja dan Ratu. Raja George VI cukup sehat untuk membuka Festival Britania pada Mei 1951, namun pada 23 September 1951, paru-paru kirinya diangkat oleh Clement Price Thomas setelah ditemukan adanya tumor ganas didalamnya. Pada Oktober 1951, Eli...

    Anggota parlemen dari Partai Buruh George Hardie, berkata bahwa krisis turun takhta pada tahun 1936 "melakukan lebih untuk gerakan republikanisme daripada propaganda selama 50 tahun". George VI menulis surat pada kakaknya Edward bahwa akibat dari turun takhta Edward, ia harus menanggung beban duduk di "singgasana yang goyah" dan mencoba "membuatnya teguh kembali".Ia menjadi raja dimana kepercayaan publik kepada kerajaan sedang berada di titik yang paling rendah. Selama ia berkuasa, rakyat Inggris mengalami kesusahaan kala perang, dan kekuasaan imperiumnya terkikis. Namun, ia adalah seseorang yang bertanggung jawab atas tugasnya dan menyayangi keluarganya. Dan dengan menujukkan keberanian dirinya, ia berhasil mengembalikan kepercayaan dan popularitas kerajaan. Salib George dan Medali George dicetuskan oleh Raja George VI selama Perang Dunia II untuk memberi penghargaan terhadap warga sipil yang telah melakukan hal yang luar biasa dan berani. Ia menganugerahi Salib George pada seluruh...
