The state visits to Wales and Northern Ireland are covered in the normal weekly issues of the ILN and it was left to the final commemorative magazine to sum up those important events in which the Queen had taken part during the month of June. This issue, ‘A Royal Garland'
(appendix List No. 152) published in September,
is a panoramic number with each event occupying a space of about 46 by
29 cm. Apart from the actual crowning of the Queen, there is the Coronation
Procession and Decorations; the Derby; the Gala Performance at Covent
Garden; the Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s, the Royal Tournament; Trooping
the Colour; the Visit to Guildhall for luncheon; the great Naval Review;
the Ascot meeting and the Royal Visit to Scotland.
