History of the abolition of the monarchy

This was actually 1953... but who's counting?

According to The Times of London (paywall), spending on the Queen's Diamond Jubilee , centring on today, will add £6.4 billion to the British (English?) economy.  

Impact on the Canadian economy of celebrations of the jubilee of "our" "Canadian" queen of Canada? 

I'd guess somewhere in the vicinity of fifty cents.

See, we have already abolished the monarchy. The rest is just paperwork.

Also Her Maj became queen upon the death of her father in February 1952. Her coronation was on June 2nd, but in 1953.  Why is the seventieth anniversary being marked today? Marketing, I guess.
