Prince Charles shares memories and recalls events from Queen Elizabeth’s public and private life, adding his own commentary and insights. Previously unseen photographs and films from Her Majesty’s private collection — many of them shot by the queen herself — capture royal family life. Highlights include behind-the-scenes footage taken at Buckingham Palace on Coronation Day, showing Her Majesty juggling the dual role of mother and queen as she poses for official photographs. The prince also shares film of family holidays, including a sequence of the young Prince Charles and Princess Anne playing at the beach in Norfolk. Filmed scenes on board Britannia, at Windsor and at Balmoral provide a glimpse of the royal family in the 1940s and 1950s.
