The Abbey Nuns Appear Again

It was all pomp and circumstance for the June 2 anniversary service  of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey.

The Coronation in 1953 was televised live by the BBC. It was the biggest operation they had ever mounted and the ceremony was watched by millions across the globe, heralding a new era in broadcasting.

Even here in the Republican bound colony this event was acknowledged by local media with  Queensland's Courier Mail providing a photo gallery. And there  among the images of Royals and their hangers-on I saw the Nuns who first gained fame at William and Kate's  Big English Wedding.

They made another cameo appearance as  Prince and Princess Michael of Kent were photographed leaving the service. Whereas most women at the service seem to have a new outfit since the wedding the two Nuns stuck to their habits and the Reeboks.
