  • Description

    Unused / unissued footage - dates and locations may be clear / unknown.

    Cuts from newsreel 47/17 - Royal Tour 1947.

    South Africa.

    Various shots of Royal family - King George VI, Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mother), Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) and Princess Margaret - during Royal Tour of South Africa.

    We see them meeting guests at the Government House garden party - the women are nearly all wearing long white dresses with large hats and parasols.

    More footage of the crowds and the Royals arriving at the Civic Reception. The Royal family speak to some men in overalls (ex-servicemen?) and nurses afterwards.

    Nice shots of the Royals posing in a garden or grounds of a house.
