    Cuts from newsreel 47/94 - Royal Wedding.

    M/S of a woman in the crowd in Whitehall holding up a periscope and looking through it with a young boy. Various other crowd shots showing people watching, sitting under umbrellas, eating sandwiches, wearing silly hats, sitting on the curb under blankets, looking through binoculars and so on.

    C/U of a guard; pan right to show a boy scout selling programmes. Ambulance men rescue a woman feeling faint from the crowds and carry her away.

    More good crowd shots - people asleep, smiling at camera and eating.

    View from a window where a movie camera in left foreground partially obscures a view of the procession and crowds.

    Good shots of the Irish Coach containing Princess Elizabeth (Queen Elizabeth II) and King George VI going by. Shots seem to have been taken from Parliament Square. The royals wave to the crowds as they go by.
