The Age, again ...

Today's Age contained these two lines:

[2nd June] 1953 - Queen Elizabeth II of England is crowned at Westminster Abbey.

Is that a warm-up for nastiness on Queen's Birthday next Monday? Or is it just plain ignorance from the editor?

Queen Elizabeth II was never crowned Queen of England, but Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia , New Zealand, the Union of South Africa, Pakistan and Ceylon, and of Her Possessions and other Territories.
