In one scene, a young Princess Elizabeth beams in a red gingham dress while showing the camera her engagement ring.

The clip, taken during Prince Philip’s first lengthy visit to Balmoral in 1946, shows a private moment before the couple’s engagement became public.

The special 75-minute programme, produced to celebrate the Queen’s platinum jubilee, will be shown on BBC One on May 29th.

The footage was discovered in the royal archives after producers combed through more than 400 rolls of film.

The royal family has often filmed each other since the 1920s. Hundreds of these rolls of film have been privately held by the Royal Collection in the vaults of the British Film Institute.

The Queen has granted special access to footage showing her life before her coronation as filmed by her, her parents and Prince Philip.

Then-Princess Elizabeth will tell the story in her own words, using footage taken before she became monarch.

The BBC said: “This is an extraordinary glimpse into a deeply personal side of the royal family, rarely seen.”

By Arthur Edwards

I WAS surprised and delighted that the pictures the Queen wanted to share with us were in colour.

But it was no surprise that she chose 1947 because it was a wonderful year, one of the happiest of her long life.

She was engaged to the only man she had ever loved, and later that year she would walk down the aisle with Philip.

But in the spring of 1947, she traveled with her mother, father and sister Margaret on an incredible royal tour of South Africa.

As Elizabeth approaches this historic platinum anniversary, the world should be thankful that we still have her.

Long live the Queen.
