    King George VI is driven in a carriage to St James's Palace for His Majesty's Levee.

  • Description

    Titles read: "HIS MAJESTY'S LEVEE AT ST JAMES'S PALACE".

    London.

    Several shots of King George VI (Prince Albert, Duke of York) riding in his carriage (his outline is just seen inside) as part of a procession going from Buckingham Palace down The Mall to St James's Palace. Crowds of people cheer as he goes by. In the court of St James's the King gets out of his carriage and goes into the Palace.
