British coronation

In Britain, is the monarch only official after coronation? If so, what is the status of the heir-apparent inbetween the death of the previous monarch and his/her coronation? For example, was Elizabeth II considered Queen the moment George VI died, or only after her coronation the following year?

Queen Elizabeth II became "official" immediately on the death of her father as implied in the familiar proclamation "The King is dead. Long live the Queen". The Coronation is a joyous occasion deliberately delayed as a mark of repect to the deceased and mourners.
