Absolute History

年 前

The Coronation in 1953 appeared to be a glittering triumph for the House of Windsor. But behind the scenes there was a three-cornered story of jealousy and rivalry at the highest level.
On one side Prince Philip was at odds with the Queen Mother over his desire to modernise the monarchy. On the other the old Queen was jealous of her daughter's sudden rise to power. The Coronation was a critical year for the young Queen Elizabeth. She was preparing to undergo the most ancient and important royal ritual, but the two people closest to her, the Queen Mother and Prince Philip had very different ideas about how it should be handled. Philip, the dashing but dangerously modern consort, was anxious that the Coronation should not be simply a stuffy replay of previous reigns. He wanted 'some features relevant to the world today'. But he was fiercely resisted by the Queen Mother and by Princess Mary, who referred to Philip as 'the Hun'.
The new Queen was caught in the middle. In Coronation Coup, we learn that Mountbatten, who had engineered the marriage between Philip and Elizabeth wanted the family name changed to Windsor-Mountbatten after her accession. Also, while the new Queen largely sided with her mother over arrangements for the Coronation, she backed Philip over perhaps the most important decision to televise the ceremony inside Westminster Abbey. In doing so she set a precedent for television to be given access to the most intimate rituals.

Why don't they ever mention Pillip is the Great Grandson of Queen Victoria and Albert? Unknown, I don't think. Maybe they are afraid it will look too much like inbreeding. (which is what the Royals have done all over Europe for hundres of generatioons.)

I love and respect Queen Elizabeth, from the time she was young and all throughout her life. I'm 80 and can identify with 500 direct lines to England. But, her mother was a different story, still Elizabeth honored her mum and loved Phillip, the serial cheater.
I can't trust a documentary which has no research at all! The Queen became queen the instant her father passed away, also the Queen mother had no reign she was just a consort.

The Queen mother didn't like Phillip because she was an "old head"...she could see phillip for who he really was...shr knew he was just taking advantage of her daughter & the Monarchy. Phillip been disowned by his father & family after his sister was killed in the plane crash when going to check on him in boarding school & his father hated him for that. Phillip was like the Bow Weevil, " just looking for a home." Phillip marrying the Queen was like his finding a bird nest on the ground.

Mountbatten wasn't really his last name, it was some German name but it was covered up because of the history behind the atrocities committed by Hitler and other Germans. The sisters, who married high German Nazi officials were not allowed to attend the marriage, big cover up. I think it was all about power behind the throne. But I didn't blame the Queen mother for holding on to the reigns because Phillip didn't have the knowledge, experiences, money, and power to become his queen's right hand man. Phillip was a lowly rake, a rogue, a sexual asshole who didn't give a damn for protecting the 👑 crown. He participated in a lot of subterfuge against the crown just to hurt the Queen mother. Phillip was a man who took advantage of a profitable situation by marrying Elizabeth, this from his uncle's history who claimed he took credit for setting up the meeting, betrothal, and marriage. The King and Queen had been opposed to the couple getting together. After Elizabeth became of age, the parents couldn't stop them. So I wasn't surprised the control the Queen mother maintained. I've always wondered if the King gave the Queen certain rules in order to protect their daughter and that of the throne from Phillip's unethical ways (time & yrs proved they were right in not being happy about Phillip being part of Windsor family). All these men who are making comments about the Queen mother's hold on the throne sound as stupid as I believe Phillip was. History has proven that Phillip was a greedy, evil, pedophile, who did nothing to further the strength and prestige of the 👑 crown. I believe now be must remain in the little 🏠 cottage he lives in until he dies because of the pedophilia and death of the 10 children that he was prosecuted for and held accountable for. However, he never turned himself in and remained free. I believe as an agreement Phillip was allowed to remain out of prison due to the power of Queen Elizabeth. I believe his son, the other pedophile and vile creature, Andrew, has also been able to remain out of jail/prison because of power and protection of his mother, Queen Elizabeth.

...She should've gotten down on her knees and praised God Almighty that someone as good looking as him would even give her daughter the time of night. The only reason that Harry and William even look like anything resembling handsome is due to their mother and their paternal grandfather. It took a long time for that ugly streak from the Windsor line (& due in no small part to the Queen Mother), to mutate from the family gene pool.

Referring to Queen Mary as a "commoner," while technically accurate, is silly. Winston Churchill, descendant of the Duke of Marlborough, though legally a commoner, most certainly was not. Duchal title or not, Churchill was an aristocrat down to his finger tips. Countess or not, Queen Mary descendant of an Earl, was most certainly an aristocrat in all practicallity.

They really just called the queen consort a commoner when she was Aristocratic just like Diana was and Diana as well was called common. Just goes to show if you’re not of the blood royal people overlook you even the power that be over looked prince Philip who was due his title as a prince of Greece he didn’t know of that title till later on in his life when the queen already marked him as “the prince” which gave him seniority among the Windsors

It’s funny really she’d look down on Prince Philip, he was born into royalty. Before she married into the Royal Family, she was a well to do commoner. Her father was the 14th Earl of Strathmore, nobility, but not royalty. She was the first commoner to marry into the Royal family in centuries. Prince Phillip’s family probably would have turned their nose up at her.

Prince Phillip was born with that title. Why did he not become King or King consorte? If I compare today with Prince Charles and Camilla who became a Duchess, and will be crowned Queen Consort? Princess Diana was born a Duchess, became a princess on her wedding day...and had all worked out, she would have become Queen? I am a little confused.

Prince Philip is the great great grandson of Czar Nicholas I. He was also the great nephew of Alexandra, wife of last Czar Nicholas II of Russia. Alexandra was also the granddaughter of Queen Victoria. So I would say Prince Philip definitely had some royal in him.

Queen mother was always such a philistine... Philip came from a royal house for both Denmark and Greece and has in his blood traces of all current and former European Royal houses. Elizabeth was a local aristocracy that has married into English Royal family. From Philip's point of view, almost a commoner. She also liked to call him a German or Teuton, simply forgetting that the real surname of her beloved Albert was Saxe-Coburg und Gotha... Sounds pretty German to me... She was completely narrow minded.
