Royal pain: Queen reveals downside of her 65-year reign

Queen Elizabeth II smiles through the window of a coach after her coronation in 1953

The correct answer to where is: In a biscuit tin buried beneath Windsor Castle. She wears the Imperial State Crown and the Robe of State, also known as the Parliamentary Robe.

The British sovereign does not concede interviews to the press, but spoke exclusively to the BBC for the recording of "The Coronation", a documentary on the British Crown jewels and the other regalia - scheduled for broadcast this Sunday - of which brief extracts were made available on Friday, Efe news agency reported. "You can't look down to read the speech - you have to take the speech up - because if you did your neck would break" she exclaimed.

The devout Christian faith of Queen Elizabeth II is a running theme on the new Netflix series "The Crown".

Librarian Oliver Urquhart, an assistant keeper of the Queen's Archives, has learnt of the story from the letters sent to the King's mother, Queen Mary.

A trapdoor used to access the secret area where the biscuit tin was kept still exists today.

In a very rare, personal account for a BBC documentary to be aired on Sunday, she speaks candidly about the occasion and some of the Crown Jewels which play a symbolic role in the ceremony. When she wears the crown, the Queen must keep very still and can not look down to read a speech.

The Queen also points out that the Imperial State Crown, worn by her for her speech during the state opening of parliament, and, has been reduced in height since her father King George VI wore it. "Because if you did your neck would break, it would fall off".

The queen not only granted permission for the jewels to be seen and captured for the show, but she also watched footage of her own coronation (which took place back in 1953)-which she had never done before. "Once you put it on, it stays".

In the interview, Queen Elizabeth delves into some of the difficulties that can come with having to wear a crown that weighed more than two pounds.
