Royal Memories: Prince Charles' Tribute to the Queen

Providing a rare glimpse of the everyday private life of the royal family, Prince Charles narrates the documentary, adding his own insight and commentary to archival newsreels, never-before-seen home movies and previously unseen photographs from Her Majesty’s private collection. Included in the program is footage of a young Prince Charles and his sister Princess Anne on a family holiday — filmed by Queen Elizabeth herself.

ROYAL MEMORIES: PRINCE CHARLES’ TRIBUTE TO THE QUEEN is a captivating documentary that gives viewers the extraordinary opportunity to see the royal family through the eyes of an insider,” said John Wilson, senior vice president & chief TV programming executive for PBS. “The unique commentary offered by the Prince of Wales makes this film about Queen Elizabeth unlike any other.”

ROYAL MEMORIES includes exclusive camera footage taken behind the scenes on Coronation day at Buckingham Palace, and clips of the family on board the Britannia, at the royal residence of Windsor Castle in Berkshire and on holiday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. The result is a documentary that depicts Queen Elizabeth in her dual role as the Queen of England and as a loving mother, providing an unprecedented glimpse of the private life of the royal family throughout the monarch’s six-decade  reign.

ROYAL MEMORIES: PRINCE CHARLES’ TRIBUTE TO THE QUEEN is a Crux Production for the BBC in association with Rare Day.
