Trivia

Created at the behest of Queen Elizabeth, eager to humanize the Royal Family at a time of social upheaval, it only aired once. The Queen concluded that it demystified them too much. Only a few minutes have ever been released since. See more »

An excellent film on the Monarchy showing a full year
11 August 2006 | by aussiebrisguySee all my reviews

This is the classic film that follows HM The Queen and her family for a full royal year. It was made to coincide with the investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales. It is the first time that cameras had been allowed to follow The Queen and her family on official and private family occasions. One such official event is the visit of then President Nixon of the United States. A private moment is The Queen and her family having a barbecue lunch in the grounds of Balmoral. Another shows Prince Charles playing the cello when a string snaps and hits poor little Prince Edward in the face. Yet another delightful scene is The Queen visiting her dogs at Sandringham. As such it is superb primary source historical material. This film did a lot to show that the royal family are not distant figures living in a museum state but are warm human beings trying to get on with the job they have to do. It is a film not to be missed.
