Diamond Jubilee: The Stamp of Queen Elizabeth's Influence
Death of a King
Princess Elizabeth, along with her mother, sister and husband, watches as her father's coffin is lifted from a train before heading to Westminster on Feb. 11, 1952. When King George VI's health started to decline the previous year, Elizabeth began standing in his place for royal duties. She and Prince Philip were abroad in Kenya on one such mission when word came that the King had passed away on Feb. 6. Elizabeth was immediately proclaimed the Queen.
