Here are the disagreements within Cabinet, the delicate negotations between Buckingham Palace and the Archbishop of Canterbury and Dean of Westminster, the successful battle to have the ceremony televised. Anxious peers squabbled over invitations. Kings and Queens, Sultans and Beys pleaded for seats in the Abbey. The Duke of Windsor was told not to come and the Queen of ?the Friendly Isles? delighted the crowds lining London?s streets by defying the pouring rain in her open carriage. The remarkable story enjoyed by the millions who crowded into front rooms to watch the flickering black and white images on televison, a medium then in its infancy.
