EDITORS COMMENTS
This striking front cover of the Illustrated London News, dated December 1936, marks the momentous occasion of the accession of King George VI following the abdication of his elder brother, King Edward VIII. The image captures the new monarch, King George VI, seated alongside his wife, Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother), against a richly decorated medieval-style border. The border is adorned with royalist emblems and the royal standard, adding an air of grandeur and tradition to the cover. The event of the abdication and accession was a significant turning point in British history, and the Illustrated London News, as a leading weekly magazine at the time, was quick to capture and commemorate the moment with this evocative cover. The heraldic and symbolic elements of the design reflect the deep-rooted traditions and values of the monarchy, while the portraits of the new king and queen serve to humanize the figures at the heart of the political upheaval. The Illustrated London News, with its long and esteemed history of reporting on royal events, was the perfect platform for documenting this pivotal moment in British history. This cover remains a powerful reminder of the enduring allure and importance of the monarchy in the hearts and minds of the people, even in the face of change and uncertainty.
