Two Manx high-schoolers attend 60th Anniversary of the Coronation celebration
Hayley Robinson from Ramsey and Elliott Alexander from Peel were at Westminster Abbey for the historic event.
The pair were chosen at random from all the head boys and girls at the island's secondary schools.
They accompanied the island's Lieutenant Governor, Adam Wood, in the 2,000-strong congregation in London.
Last year's Diamond Jubilee marked the 60th anniversary of the Queen's accession to the throne.
Back then, aged 27, she was the 38th sovereign to be crowned in an abbey that has been conducting Coronation ceremonies since 1066.
