Description

This extraordinary footage shows pre-War Belfast in glorious colour and has never been seen before. Huge crowds gather in Belfast City Centre to see the new royal couple.

Following the ceremony in Belfast, the royal party travelled to Balmoral Park for a display by Scouts, Guides, Girls Brigade and Boys Brigade as well as Cadets and schoolchildren.

Notes
