He had gone to London Airport to bid farewell to Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh as they set off on a tour of the Commonwealth. They had got as far as Kenya when news of his death summoned them home. The Duke of Kent, then aged 16, was at school at Le Rosey in Switzerland at the time. There were few departures from the services conducted at previous coronations. Efforts were made to shorten the lengthy proceedings: the litany was sung during the regalia procession before the start of the service, and the sermon was omitted entirely.  Even so, the service itself lasted for two and a half hours,  excluding the preliminary processions.As monarch, George VI was Supreme Governor of the Church of England. He was also a member of the Church of Scotland. Soft cover. Condition: Good/Fair. 1st Edition.

A. de Smith (1949), "The London Declaration of the Commonwealth Prime Ministers, April 28, 1949", The Modern Law Review, 12 (3): 351–354, doi: 10.1111/j.1468-2230.1949.tb00131.x, JSTOR 1090506 The future George VI was born during the reign of his great-grandmother Queen Victoria; he was named Albert at birth after his great-grandfather Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha and was known as "Bertie" to his family and close friends. His father ascended the throne as George V in 1910. As the second son of the king, Albert was not expected to inherit the throne. He spent his early life in the shadow of his elder brother, Edward, the heir apparent. Albert attended naval college as a teenager and served in the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force during the First World War. In 1920, he was made Duke of York. He married Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon in 1923, and they had two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret. In the mid-1920s, he engaged speech therapist Lionel Logue to treat his stutter, which he learned to manage to some degree. His elder brother ascended the throne as Edward VIII after their father died in 1936, but Edward abdicated later that year to marry the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson. As heir presumptive to Edward VIII, Albert became king, taking the regnal name George VI.
