• Short Summary

    Princesses riding their horses around grounds of Windsor Castle, their parents join them.

  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Windsor Park, Berkshire.

    Various shots of Princess Margaret and Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) riding their horses around the grounds of Windsor Castle, a few deer and the odd Corgi in the background. The Princesses where jodhpurs and headscarves, they seem very relaxed. The Princesses make their horses do tricks: the animals stand with their front legs on buckets. King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mother) join the Princesses, the King smokes a cigarette.

    Most of the item is mute except for a minute or so of natural sound starting at 01:41:49: we hear the Princesses talking to their parents and petting their horses - voices are indistinct but interesting to hear Royalty chatting!
