    High angle view of state procession bringing Italian President Giuseppe Saragat and his daughter Santa Catarina (sp?) to Windsor Castle. Several shots of the horse-drawn carriages and mounted guards in the procession. Queen Elizabeth II rides in the first carriage with the President and Prince Philip rides in the second carriage with Santa Catarina.

    Inside the Castle, Princess Anne, the Duchess of Gloucester (Princess Alice), the Duke and Duchess of Kent (Prince Edward and Princess Katherine) wait to greet the visitors. M/S of Royal coat of arms mounted on beam in the castle.

    Outside again, we see the Queen's Soldiers make their way to the Castle courtyard to be reviewed by the President.
