Buckingham Palace and a BBC broadcaster said on Saturday that never-before-seen footage of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth as a young girl before ascending the throne will be shown in a new documentary to be released at the end of this month.
The parade on May 29 will precede the celebrations of seven decades of the Queen’s accession to the throne.
“This documentary is an extraordinary glimpse into a deeply personal side of the royal family that is rarely seen, and it’s great to be able to show it to the nation as we celebrate their platinum jubilee,” said Simon Young, BBC historical affairs.
(BBC) The producers watched more than 400 videos, including behind the scenes of events in the country, as well as more than 300 speeches given by the Queen.
Prince Harry said he was assured that his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, “is surrounded by the right people” and that she is “safe” when he met her during a rare visit to Europe in the last third of last April, according to Reuters.
Harry and his wife Megan met his grandmother, the Queen of Britain, at Windsor Castle on their first trip to Britain since they gave up their royal duties in March 2020, and after they shocked the royal family during an exciting television interview with Oprah Winfrey last year.
“It was great to be with her,” Harry said in an interview with NBC television during the Invictus Games in The Hague.
“I wanted to make sure she was safe and surrounded by the right circle of people… You know, my home is now and right now in the United States.”
Harry and Meghan and their two young sons and daughters live in California, USA. Harry returned to Britain for his grandfather’s funeral a year ago, but did not attend a memorial service last month due to a row with the government over security measures.
The Queen, who will turn 96, has largely stayed out of the spotlight after spending a night in hospital in October with undisclosed fatigue, and doctors advised her to rest.
The result of her Covid test in February was positive, and the symptoms were said to be moderate, similar to a cold.
The Queen continued to meet diplomats and officials online, but she did not attend a number of major events, such as the “Sunday of Remembrance” gathering that Britain celebrates every year, as well as the Easter service.
