The 60th anniversary of The Queen's coronation has been celebrated by the nation at a service in London where Her Majesty's qualities of devotion and self-sacrifice were praised.

At Westminster Abbey, where The Queen was crowned on 2nd June 1953, Britain's leaders, members of the Royal family and members of the public gathered to honour her.

The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry were all present at the ceremony.

The Most Rev Justin Welby said: "Today we celebrate 60 years since that moment, 60 years of commitment."

The abbey service was divided into the Recognition, Anointing, Homage and Thanksgiving, reflecting parts of the original coronation ceremony.
