It is the first time the couple have attended a public event at the Abbey where they married two years ago.

Some of those who attended the June 2, 1953 service were among the 2,000-strong congregation.

The Queen's reign began in 1952 when she was 27-years-old when her father died, with the Coronation taking place a year later. Sixty years ago, the weather was cold, grey and wet, but it was a sunny warm day for the celebratory service.
