The maximum congregation of Westminster Abbey is 40,000. Because of the superb planning and matchless skill of the British Broadcasting Company, more than 100,000,000 persons throughout the world were able to view and participate in the impressive coronation ceremony to greater advantage than most of those physically present. Additional millions heard the vivid descriptions of this historic event. This presentation reminded people everywhere of the majesty and fidelity of the British people and their devotion to the crown. Free peoples were given new hope that the values they cherish are more secure in a period of tension and anxiety because of the dedication of the British Commonwealth to these principles.
