BBC History and Pathe News have both released Royal Weddings Collections

I follow the British Pathe archive on Facebook and their archivists have just released their collection of Royal Weddings footage, literally EVERYTHING is in there. My favourites so far are the making of Royal Weddings cakes in the 1930s and 1950s!

The Royal Weddings Collection - British Pathe

If anyone knows anything interesting about these clips then please do share!

I loved one of one of the page boys, I think William of Gloucester, as he died young, I can't remember what happened. If you find that one then please do share it.

Also, if this Weddings Collection should be in a different forum then please move it to the right place, sorry, thanks!

William of Gloucester died in the crash of a plane he was piloting.
