This weekend marks the celebration of the Queen of England’s 60th year on the throne and Buckingham Palace is throwing a Diamond Jubilee in here honor. The official festivities start June 2nd, but tonight on the BBC One we get a glimpse into the royal family’s personal life when Prince Charles shares some never before seen home movies.
Shot mostly by the queen, these movies show a different side of Queen Elizabeth and her family. We see her playing and reading to a young Charles on a couch in Balmoral, relaxing with the family and her ever so famous Welsh Corgi’s outside on the lawn or filming her daredevil children and husband, as they jump from the dunes on a family holiday to the shore. Throughout the documentary, Prince Charles shares his memories of the events and his mother the Queen. It’s a great glimpse into very private lives of the royal family.
