Queen & Country

London: Royal City

56:10

London is, indisputably, the capital of Britain’s royal life. Here, the young Princess Elizabeth grew up before World War II. It's where she and her sister mingled, incognito, with the joyous crowds on VE Day. Where she was crowned queen at the age of 26 after the death of her father, King George. Join Sir Trevor McDonald as he introduces us to the ongoing traditions of the monarchy in London.
