The Queen's Home Movies

A very young Prince Charles and Princess Anne
being held by their parents circa 1951

Many thanks to my truckbuddy Davis for sending me the link to A Jubilee Tribute to the Queen by the Prince of Wales - which is that program shown on the BBC the other night that I blogged about, with many delightful scenes from the Queen's home movies from the 1950's.

I think these intimate scenes of family life bring home vividly the ordinary humanity of an extraordinary woman - something your Head Trucker discerned many years ago - which makes her sixty years' reign an even more remarkable story.  Enjoy.

Thank you, Russ. I loved Prince Charles's Jubilee tribute film. And I wouldn't have seen it anywhere else but here.

I'm glad you could see it here. I like to think that sometimes the Blue Truck is a helpful info link to people.
