    Material relating to newsreel story "Princess in Kenya" - 52/12

  • Description

    Selected originals (offcuts, selected scenes, out-takes, rushes) for "Princess in Kenya" - 52/12 story.

    L/S of safari vehicle driving through field in Nairobi Game Preserve. Various shots of different animals seen on safari including zebras, buffalo (?), giraffes, lions etc. All L/Ss or M/Ss - no good close ups. Presumably it is Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh on safari although cannot really see them in the truck.

    Royal couple arrive at Sagana Lodge and are met by the Governor Sir Philip Mitchell. Various shots of the royal couple walking in the gardens of the Lodge. (Shots seem to be out of order).

    (Sel Originals for unissued story - replaced by the Death of King George VI 52/12.)

    Note: there is a note on file from the cameraman regarding the Game Preserve: "One was not allowed to get out of car in the game preserve, making it impractical to get pictures of Royals."
