Queen Elizabeth and how her crown could break her neck

British crown jewels buried in biscuit tin

Oh, and follow a rule that you must stop eating as soon as your fam's matriarch has decided she's full. King George VI ordered the secret burial, the BBC reported, having stones from the Imperial State Crown and the Black Prince's Ruby placed in the metal tin. That much was clear after he was with the Queen when she watched her coronation for the very first time, as part of the upcoming documentary The Coronation, which examines the 1953 ceremony on its 65th anniversary. "Because if you did, your neck would break and it [the crown] would fall off", she said smiling.

This comes after the Queen called her coach ride to her coronation "horrible".

"So there are some disadvantages to crowns, but otherwise they're quite important things", Elizabeth added.

In the letters, Sir Owen Morshead, then the royal librarian, described to Queen Mary (mother of King George VI) how he had removed the most precious jewels from the Imperial State Crown, the royal headgear worn by the sovereign while addressing the state opening of Parliament.

"It's not meant for traveling in at all".

"Yes", Elizabeth agreed. "Fortunately, my father and I have about the same sort of shaped head, but once you put it on, it stays".

"It's only sprung on leather, not very comfortable."

Giving her personal recollection, the Queen also revealed how she had struggled with her coronation dress, which was embroidered in silk with pearls, and gold and silver thread. "We could only go at a walking pace".

"The only word I can come up with is medicinal, like cough syrup", she said.

"I've seen one coronation [her father's in 1937] and been the recipient in the other, which is pretty remarkable".

This news was revealed while filming The Coronation - set to air on BBC One on Sunday - during an interview the Queen had with royal commentator Alastair Bruce.
