Curator's Choice: Princess Elizabeth

Senior Film Curator Jane Fish highlights a film for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee 

With the forthcoming Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations coming up, I thought we should showcase a rare colour film of the young Princess Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret Rose. This charming footage, shot by their neighbour, amateur camerawoman Rosie Newman, shows the two princesses playing in the garden of their then home in London’s Piccadilly. 

This film is one of many amateur films in our collection which can be researched using IWM Film.
