By Brittany Hobson THE CANADIAN PRESS Jamie Hill was four years old when his family walked over to a neighbour’s home in Kitchener, Ont., to watch Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953. The now 73-year-old doesn’t remember much from the ceremony that would become a social and cultural phenomenon, but a constant reminder of the day hangs in his home in St. Agatha, Ont. Hill’s grandmother attended the coronation in person and bought a piece of tapestry that was created for the event. She later passed it down to Hill. The lifetime member of the Monarchist League of Canada recently added a commemorative coronation mug for King Charles III, bought during a recent trip to Scotland, to his memorabilia collection. Hill plans to sip coffee out of it on May
