Home movies from behind the crown
on archive news reels and never-before-seen home movies and photographs, new documentary A Jubilee Tribute to the Queen by the Prince of Wales reflects back on Her Majesty’s 60-year reign. Previously unseen photographs and films from Her Majesty’s private collection – many filmed by the Queen – capture family life. Highlights include footage filmed on Coronation Day behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace that shows Her Majesty juggling the dual role of mother and Queen as she walks the corridors of Buckingham Palace and poses for official photographs.
The Prince also shares footage from family holidays, including one sequence filmed by the Queen in which we see a young Prince Charles and Princess Anne playing in the sand at Holkham Beach, Norfolk. Other reels, filmed on board Britannia, at Windsor and Balmoral, give the viewer a fascinating insight into the life of the Royal Family in the 1940s and 1950s. The Prince of Wales adds his own commentary.
