The Queen Opens Up About Her Coronation In Rare Public Interview

You never know where Queen Elizabeth II will make a surprise appearance next. Even now, the 91-year-old royal is continuing to do things that she normally wouldn’t, which keeps us on our toes.

Through her six-decade rein, The Queen has rarely spoken candidly on camera, which makes times like these all the more powerful.

In the new documentary The Coronation, Queen Elizabeth II makes a surprise appearance when she discusses her coronation in 1953, as well as the dazzling crown she wore on that day.

The film uses rare footage and explores the history behind the famous crown that the Queen has only worn once in her life.

Including 23,000 precious stones, the original St. Edward’s Crown was destroyed after the English Civil War, but was remade for the Coronation of Charles II in 1661. Weighing a whopping 4 pounds, Queen Elizabeth II only wore the precious piece for a brief time during her coronation, before switching to a lighter crown.

She also goes on to speak about the 1937 coronation of her father King George VI, when she was just 11-years-old.

“I’ve seen one coronation, and been the recipient in the other, which is pretty remarkable,” says the royal great-grandmother.

Judi Dench Has Moved On From Acting And Become A Tree Whisperer

You may traditionally know Judi Dench from her award-winning roles in The Sound Of Music, Mrs Brown, or the James Bond series, or any other of the assortment of films she has taken part in over the years.

However, Dench has reached a point in her life where acting no longer provides the same thrill, and she wanted to highlight her new-found interest in a documentary. It’s called Judi Dench: My Passion For Trees. No, really.

She explains that she has always felt a love for these towering guardians of the woods, and now has dedicated much of her life to looking after and preserving them.

Despite critical fame, Dench has felt a connection to trees and nature, growing up in a small village in northern England. “Ever since I’ve been a little girl, I’ve adored trees,” she admits. And her documentary makes this very clear!

She details everything she has learned about trees throughout her life, and how they have helped her grow as a person, especially when dealing with loss.

15 Years After He Murdered His Pregnant Wife, Scott Peterson Tells All

From an outsider’s perspective, Scott and Laci Peterson were a picture-perfect pair. The California couple, who seemed happily married, lived in a beautiful suburban home with their dog, and had a baby on the way.

As you can imagine, no one ever expected 27-year-old Laci to suddenly vanish while walking the dog on Christmas Eve of 2002.

A few months later, her decomposed and mutilated body washed ashore in the San Francisco Bay, sparking a highly publicized murder investigation that captivated the entire nation. Everyone rooted for authorities to capture her killer as soon as possible.

Laci’s family, friends, and the rest of America had a difficult time understanding why anyone would want to commit such a heinous crime, especially considering she had no enemies. However, in an unforeseen twist, investigators began to grow suspicious of Scott due to his bizarre behavior, visible disinterest in the investigation, refusal to take a polygraph test, and inconsistent alibi.

Police eventually found evidence that suggested Scott, who worked as a fertilizer salesman, was Laci’s killer. He was arrested while on the run in 2003, charged with first-degree murder of Laci, and second-degree murder of baby Connor. He was sentenced to death by lethal injection in 2005.

So what drove this supposed “perfect gentleman” to kill his wife and unborn child?

Turns out, he might have been motivated by the extramarital affair he was having with a woman named Amber Frey. This information came to light after investigators found that Scott made a phone call to Amber during the New Year’s Eve candlelight vigil held for Laci. At the time, he told her that he was in Europe celebrating.

Amber later cooperated with the police, claiming that she had no idea Scott was married and that his wife had gone missing. She offered to share any information she had that could assist the investigation.

Fifteen years later, Scott is sitting in San Quentin State Prison’s death row, and has had two appeals and a request for a new trial denied.

He has recently made his first public statements about the case in the A&E docuseries The Murder of Laci Peterson, and he is once again the subject of a new documentary on Discovery titled Scott Peterson: An American Murder Mystery.

Scott still maintains his innocence, and has made some interesting claims.

Talk Show Host Cancels Her Own Show

Sometimes it’s low ratings, other times it’s personal matters, but when a host decides that their show has run its course there’s always a reason. This week, Chelsea Handler made a statement about her show Chelsea, which will be drawing to a close after two seasons.

The show premiered on the popular streaming service Netflix last year and received positive reviews from critics all around. It takes the form of a late-night talk show where the host, Chelsea, discusses topics in the days news, though often with a humorous spin. This is the first time that Netflix has tried this talk show format.

Chelsea has previously been a part of several different talk shows, with a wide range of experiences to back up her talents as a comedian including the popular series Chelsea Lately.

More recently, she was a part of a Netflix documentary series called Chelsea Does that explored cultural habits and taboos in America with a provocative investigative stance.

While this gave her the opportunity to create her latest show, it was her interactions with troubled individuals that made her decide the future of her talk show – and for this reason, she’s not looking back.
