• Short Summary

    The Prince of Wales and the Duke of Kent visit Stockholm - Edward is particularly popular.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Stockholm. 'Prince Charming' ... all Sweden is calling him. Swedish capital goes 'all-British" to welcome the Prince of Wales & Prince George."

    Stockholm, Sweden.

    The Prince of Wales' insignia and the British Union Jack flag form part of the decorations in a Stockholm street. Street scenes with Union Jack's flying from shops. A large royal coat of arms on display. A small photograph of Prince Edward, the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor). It is displayed in a hat shop window. British and Swedish flags hang from a large building.

    King Gustav of Sweden shakes hands with the Prince of Wales, behind him getting off the train is Prince George. The Crown Prince and Princess also welcome the two British royals.

    Princess Ingrid shakes hands with the Prince of Wales (the voiceover asks 'Now is there a romance?' Probably referring to Duke of Kent). Various others greet the two Princes.

    The King and the Prince of Wales get into an open car. C/U as the car drives away, both men are shielding their eyes from the sun.

    The car drives down a crowd lined street. Two young women run out of the crowd to get a closer look at Edward. A policeman asks them to step back.

    The Prince of Wales goes out to play golf. Good C/Us of him in golfing attire. The voiceover comments on his role as a fashion leader.
