Diamond Jubilee: 4 months late or 1 year early?

This will probably be my only post of the “Jubilee Celebrations”.

Interesting facts: The Queen’s father (King George VI) passed away on 6th February 1952 (60 years and 4 months ago) and Elizabeth became Queen Elizabeth II, that is the date of the start of her reign as Queen.

Her coronation was not until 4th June 1953 (59 years ago).

So, I (and others I have spoken to today) are confused… this whole Jubilee thing is either 4 months late (if you go by the start of her reign on 6th February 1952) or a year early (if you go by the date of her coronation 4th June 1953).
