A Very Royal Wedding
The marriage of Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip on the 20th November 1947 was supposed to be a low-key family affair, but it became an extraordinary moment of celebration to raise the spirits of a world broken by war.
Brought to life through stunning colour archive, and with access to exclusive behind the scenes footage, this landmark documentary tells the story of how the wedding captured the hearts of a nation. It celebrates the contributions of all those who made the wedding such a unique occasion, from those on the inside including members of the royal family, through to the jewelers and dressmakers. At the heart of the film are stunning recreations of the engagement ring and the wedding cake.
Presented by British actor Alexander Armstrong.
