Viewable for the first time in high quality 4K, this is reel 3 of the 25 minute British Movietone documentary called “The Royal Wedding”. This stunning 4K version has been made from the original British Movietone 35 mm negative. Movietone were the only company to film events of this momentous day on film rather than video. A seamless version of the documentary is available via AP Archive in London. The file size is too large to upload to YouTube so we have loaded up each individual reel for you to enjoy in 4K quality, plus 12 clips of key moments from this special day.
