  • Short Summary

    King George V is seen looking at an African exhibit.

  • Description

    Wembley, London.

    Title: "KING & QUEEN show our Royal Guests from Italy some of the wonders of the British Empire Exhibition".

    M/S of the Royal party, including King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy, walking through a crowd, several policemen walk ahead clearing a path.

    M/S of King George V and a group of officials in bowler hats looking at an African exhibit, a group of submissive looking African women stand outside a mud hut, one of the officials pulls one woman forward and pats her head, the King and the officials crowd round her and stare - appears very racist!
