The event was broadcast for black and white television by the BBC and was also recorded on colour film. Parts of the procession were also televised in colour as an experiment but the transmission was only viewed publicly by the children and staff of the Hospital for Sick Children in Great Ormonde Street, London.
Planning for the event took over 16 months, so there was plenty of time to make sure that everything was in order, including the make-up the Queen and her Ladies-in-Waiting were to wear on the day.
This was entrusted to Thelma Holland, the director of the London salon of Cyclax, a well-established English cosmetic company. Jules Henri Joerin of the London firm Emile. After receiving Cyclax training in London in , she returned to Australia and travelled the country as the Australian demonstrator for Cyclax before returning to London in to join the London salon in South Molton Street.

Considering the length of the ceremony and the state processions before and after the service, it was agreed that Elizabeth would wear a liquid foundation as it would last longer than a cream.
