Diamond Jubilee: Galleries and Collections by British Pathé

Here in the British Pathé film archive we’ve prepared some exciting themed galleries for you to celebrate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee. Of course we’re thrilled to be selected by Clarence House to appear on the official Diamond Jubilee website but we also wanted to do something special for our archive’s visitors too.

So, this morning we have launched three exciting new galleries, the first in a series that will celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. There are:

Princess Elizabeth: A Young Queen




The Queen’s Hats: 20 Fantastic Headpieces




Queen Around The World: A Lifetime of Travelling




We hope that you enjoy looking at these galleries as much as we enjoyed making them. The Queen’s life really is obviously a unique one but we were constantly surprisised to learn new exciting aspects of Her Majesty’s life whilst researching these galleries, and for us the Diamond Jubilee is also a celebration of newsreel and its history. British Pathe followed The Royal Family for decades, working closely with them and documenting their momentous ceremonies and milestones.

Here are three collections of archive footage that you can explore and enjoy for free online now:

The Diamond Jubilee Collection

The Royal Coronation Collection

Princess Elizabeth: A Young Queen

Keep an eye out for forthcoming galleries, and please do let us know what you think – either by leaving a comment below, or on our archive’s Facebook Page or by tweeting us @britishpathe.
