While most monarchies have crumbled, the British royal family remains essential to the nation's identity. Today, the House of Windsor continues to capture the world's imagination, most recently for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, watched by a global audience of millions. This documentary gathers archival film footage and stills from nearly a century of official events. Highlights include the Silver Jubilee of King George V (1935); the coronation of George VI and Queen Elizabeth, formerly Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon (1937); the wedding of Princess Elizabeth to Prince Philip (1947); the coronation of Elizabeth II (1953); the wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer (1981); Diana's funeral (1997); and the announcement of Prince William's engagement to Catherine Middleton (2010). Full of pomp, pageantry, ritual, tradition, and sheer splendor, these historic films portray the Windsors at their most noble.
Very little history given, this is just film clips, most too lengthy to keep the viewer's interest. I cannot recommend this video, especially for the price.Published on July 9, 2013 by P. Walker
