June 2, 2017 is the 64th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation. In Season 1 of the Netflix series, The Crown, there is a dramatic scene where Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, argues that the Queen’s coronation should be shown on television so that audiences around the world could share in the event. As depicted in The Crown, there was substantial opposition to televising the coronation including skepticism from then Prime Minister Winston Churchill.
