The Diamond Jubilee

British Pathé celebrates the Diamond Jubilee with this collection of newsreels and documentaries from the life of Queen Elizabeth II. Beginning with the Queen as a young girl with her grandmother, it features her marriage, her coronation, the royal tours, selected royal visits within Britain, and the home life of the Royal Family. The collection concludes with footage of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897.
