    M/S Prince Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII, Duke of Windsor) leads George and Ingrid out of the factory into sunlight - they shield eyes. Workers look on.

    The Prince of Wales opens a golf course. Next to him is the Crown Prince of Sweden. Low angle shot of people on a balcony. The Prince, wearing golfing gear and a beret, takes a few practice swings with his driver. He steps up to the tee and hits a pretty good drive. "200 yards down the fairway" according to the voiceover. The gathered crowd applaud.
