I love that everyone on #TheCoronation is treating the Crown Jewels with such care and reverence, with special gloves and everything. And then The Queen's just picking at it and shaking it about and tapping on the metal.
Viewers were also impressed by the Queen’s no-nonsense sense of humour. After being told that the jewels were hidden in a biscuit tin during World War II, EIIR seemed unimpressed. She wondered whether the courtier who hid them had shared the secret with anyone else.
“‘He might have died in the middle,” she noted, as upper-lips across the country stiffened in respect.
And the sass continued…
The Queen is actually making me laugh out loud. Interviewer: “what did the children do during #TheCoronation?” HM: “No idea. I wasn’t there” She really is the nations granny pic.twitter.com/sZ0zYdH11p
