During World War II, The Royal Family Hid The Crown Jewels In A Cookie Tin
January 17, 2018
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of England is obligated to wear the Imperial State Crown every year at the State Opening of Parliament. But this is not an easy feat. The crown, which is a very important symbol of the British Monarchy, weighs 3 lbs.
While speaking to the BBC during a documentary celebrating the Queen’s ascension to the throne, Her Majesty shed some light on the challenge of wearing the crown, especially when having to read a speech.
You can’t look down to read the speech, you have to take the speech up. Because if you did, your neck would break.
