The Making of a Queen
The History Channel  |  June 10, 2019

This remarkable film is not a round up of the last 60 years, but rather a unique and exclusive look at a defining period in the Queen's life - from the moment her father, the king, died in 1952, to the day of her Coronation on June 2nd, 1953 - when the shy 25-year-old was suddenly and unexpectedly thrust into the limelight and crowned Queen of England. With rare and previously unseen archive from the time, this program features interviews with the people who were there close to the young Elizabeth, including the Queen's cousin and lady-in-waiting, Lady Pamela Hicks, and Sir Edward Ford, asst private secretary to Her Majesty from 1952-1967.
