She was always a keen proponent for an invention. Despite resistance from Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, she insisted that her entire coronation be filmed and shown live on television worldwide.

In an effort to win over the public, Elizabeth made a bid that set her apart from the rest of dynastic history. She decided to endorse measures which would reduce mandatory public spending and would benefit her people.

She publicly acknowledged the fact that the monarchy was indebted to the public tax and revenue system for its functioning. And, in trying to repair the Windsor Castle after the fire of 1992 she opened up a part of the Buckingham Palace to the public to visit it.
