Pity we have not heard anything from the Duke of Gloucester it would have be nice to complete the set of main working royals
Edward and Sophie spoke at length on theSky documentary.

A lovely documentary and very personal in places, particularly witnessing Sarah Chatto and the Duke of Kent genuinely moved by what they see in the footage. I found Anne's response to the question about whether the Queen is an optimist an interestingly considered response. The shared viewing by Charles & the Queen was an inspired idea and the nearest we will get to an interview with HM.

I loved the BBC documentary and will watch it again. So much information and insight. Great to see HMQ and Charles interact. Sarah Chatto was a delight and loved all the other contributions. Definitely worth watching.

It is being repeated on Sunday at 16:35 with some additional footage from the BBC archive.

Without question the best programe on HMQ, and the British Royal Family ever made.

They are so normal it is nothing short of MIRACULOUS, as their unique position in this World could all too easily 'turn their heads'

As I said a while ago: The BBC is by far the best when it comes to royal documentaries/coverage, with the exception of the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant. I liked Elizabeth at 90 on Sky News too, but their coverage of today's events wasn't worth watching.

I had to download a VPN software to change my ip to a UK one then I could watch on the BBC site. I had to wait until after it's over. I just looked on YouTube, I didn't see it.

Thanks for the info, Skippyboo. I'll have one of my children figure this out for me. My 9 yr old grand has managed to get The Octonauts newest programs by doing something like that. ��

If you watched the one that Charles did for the diamond jubilee, a lot of this one is the same footage but with comments from Queen, Charles, Anne, Duke of Kent, Sarah Chatto, Princess Alexandra and the comedy duo of the Wales brothers.

I loved W&H commentary on Harry's christening-Will chase Zara around with Harry saying that could be last Christmas.

I have seen a YouTube clip of Harry's christening with that chasing going on. I was hoping to hear the comments from the other family members. Hopefully, I'll find it. Smile.

Loved this program, esp. the way they did it, by watching old "home-movies" and commenting on them

Also, some things i hadn't really considered before:
- P.Anne mentioning why the Queen wasn't overly joyeus at her milestone of becoming the longest reigning monarch (of Britain): that it happened because her father had died so young
- DoK being very moved by the footage of the funeral of K.George VI and how he was one of the royal dukes (at 16) walking next to his uncle the Duke of Windsor who he had never really met before

But really, i loved all of it

Yeah, William and Zara was running around William and Harry's great grandmother, Lady Ruth Fermoy. Diana's grandmother and Woman of the Bedchamber to The Queen Mother.

Quite a few cute moments in those home movies, and fascinating ones too - the ebullient Bowes Lyon family, the brief glimpse of Prince Philip's youngest sister Sophie, whom Philip adored, her son Karl, Charles's first cousin, Anne's insights into her mother's character, her humour over Nanny Lightbody and the glimpse of the very tall and disgraced Miss Crawford!

I'm two minutes in and i already absolutely adore this. Charles is so warming.
Far Far beyond the sky interview. This is so honest.

It's up on YouTube now. I enjoyed watching the program. To see and hear from The Queen on watching her home movies was beyond amazing. Her wonderful and motherly interaction with Charles is something we don't see on a regular bases. The family watching and commenting on the movies was very moving and funny. In a way, the doc paid tribute to the royals that's no longer with us as well. Nice to see the home movies that include the late King, Queen, Margaret and Diana among others.
