Royal Review: Elizabeth at 90 - A Family Tribute

Elizabeth at 90 is a special tribute to Queen Elizabeth on her 90th birthday. Featuring rarely seen footage of the Queen through her childhood to being a young mother and monarch, Elizabeth at 90 provides a personal glimpse of the Queen through her family. Various members of the royal family contributed to the special, including the Prince of Wales, Prince William, Prince Harry, Lady Sarah Chatto, the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra, Queen Margarethe of Denmark, the Queen's first cousin, Margaret Rhodes and most significantly, the Queen herself. In her entire reign, she has never given an interview, so it is a rare treat to listen to her asides about the footage.

A very enjoyable special. Make sure you enjoy it while it is still online!

Thank you for sharing this video. I have to say that was probably the most intimate documentary I've ever seen of the Queen and her family. I can imagine how nostalgic and even sad it is to watch films of so many loved ones that are gone. I also got a sense of how her family is realizing the reality that the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will not be around forever, and time grows short. What a long and eventful life she has had. Though it is probably rather intrusive to the royal family, it is an amazing documentary. Thanks again for featuring it.
