        Special Royal tour of NZ Kenya & Ceylon

      • Front Cover

        In this issue appears the following notice on page 202:-

        HIS MAJESTY THE KING, WHO DIED IN HIS SLEEP AT SANDRINGHAM ON FEB 6

        H.M. King George VI - on whom an operation for lung resection was carried out on Setember 23 last year - died in his sleep at Sandringham, early in the morning of February 6. His Majesty had retired for the night in his usual health, aand his death was unexpected. This Special number of the Illustrated London News was planned to commemorate the Royal Tour of Australasia, and had gone to press when the announcement of His Majesty's death was made, and no alteration in the remainder of the contents was possible. The Tour has now been cancelled and so this number records the programme which now unhappily must be abandoned. We take this opportunity of voicing our deep sorrow and loyal sympathy with the Queen and all the Royal family, and most particularly with Princess Elizabeth, who now takes up the heavy reponsibilities to which her destiny has called her. King George VI, was born in 1895, and ascended the Throne on December 11 1936.
