  • Description

    Full title reads: "Cowes. For A Well Earned Holiday. The King and Queen arrive in Royal Yacht 'Victoria and Albert' for the holiday they like the best."

    Cowes, Isle of Wight, Hampshire.

    Shot of Royal Yacht coming into Cowes harbour - it is largely blocked from view by a warship. The warship fires a salute. Better shot of 'Victoria and Albert'.

    Cannons on the sea front are fired in salute to the Royal Arrival.

    More shots of the arrival of the Royal Yacht. People watch from the sea front.

    A launch comes up to the quay and King George V and Queen Mary disembark. They are greeted by a local dignitary. Local people cheer as the Royals walk past. (Also in the Royal party are Prince Albert, Duke of York (later King George VI) and Duchess of York (later Queen Elizabeth, Queen mother). )
