    Full title reads: "London. 'The Happy Lovers' - The Pathe Gazette joins with you in wishing long life & happiness to Prince Lennart & his charming bride-to-be, Miss Karin Nissvandt."


    Introductory intertitle reads: "Love rules the Court - the camp, the grove. And men below and Saints above. For love is heaven and Heaven is love! - Sir Walter Scott."

    Prince Lennart and his fiancee Miss Karin Nissvandt walk out on a roof top overlooking London.

    Prince Lennart using home movie film camera to film shots of Miss Nissvandt. Pan from Prince to single shot of his intended. Pan back to the Prince using his camera. He asks her for 'just a smile please'.

    The cameramen ask for the couple to pose for them and they do. A nice two shot of the couple. The interviewer talks to the Prince. The Prince is talking about getting his flying certificate before he is married. They talk about flying and about how windy it is on the rooftop. Very nice relaxed chat.
