The series shows the role that Prince Philip played in supporting the young queen after she was thrust onto the throne by the early death of her father king George VI in 1952, when she was 25. Other notable royals who attended the family gathering included James, Viscount Severn, Lady Louise Windsor 4.

The royal pair will open a theatre and science discovery centre after journeying overnight from London on Wednesday.

All of the Royal Family was in attendance.
