    Coverage of the wedding of Princess Elizabeth to the Duke of Edinburgh.

  • Description

    Different footage for the royal wedding film: "Princess's Wedding Day." Material in this reel not seen in other version.

    High angle shot of Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh as they walk down the aisle of Westminster Abbey followed by their bridesmaids. Closer shot of the royal couple and entourage. View of Queen Elizabeth, King George Queen Mary and other important guests at the wedding as they leave the Abbey. High angle shot of group of people outside the Abbey. Other guests at the wedding walking down the aisle. C/U of the Royal shield.

    M/S of the Princess and her groom climbing into the Royal carriage. L/S of the Royal carriage leaving the Abbey and various shots of it being driven through crowd lined streets. Policemen hold back the crowds. MS of the Royal couple climbing out of the carriage and up the steps to Buckingham Palace. High angle shot of the crowds surging forward towards the gates of the palace from the Victoria Memorial.

    Various shots of huge crowds moving forwards with police holding them back. Royal couple come out onto the balcony. Close view of them waving to the crowds. Panning shot of the crowds waving back. They are joined on the balcony by the rest of the royals. High angle of the waving crowds. Interior of the palace. Elizabeth and Philip pose for photographs. As do the King and Queen and Princess Margaret. Night shots of the royal carriage being driven across Westminster Bridge. M/S of the carriage arriving at a station - presumably Waterloo. The couple climb aboard a train.

    Note: There is a Pathe end title on this reel so perhaps this was an alternative version. No title at the front - perhaps a different second reel? Mute.
