Sixty two years ago, our much loved King, George VI, died peacefully in his sleep .

The Heiress Presumptive, the Princess Elizabeth was in Kenya on her way to Australia and New Zealand.

She returned to a grey and sombre London, Sir Winston Churchill and her ministers waiting at the airport.

The Accession Council met proclaiming her Queen Elizabeth II.
