Queen Elizabeth II was on the throne on February 6, 1952. At that time, the position of the monarchy in British society changed dramatically and is almost unrecognizable to the way it was seen in the 1950s. Along with Prince Philip, she supervised the modernization that pushed the crown into the twentieth century – and her decision to greet TV cameras in the 1960s was an important step in that direction.
Richard Cawston's BBC documentary team followed the royal family for 18 months while they lived their daily lives.
Their activities ranged from Prince Phillip Grilling's food from Balmoral to the Queen, making small talks with US President Richard Nixon.
It was originally broadcast on June 21, 1969, the year when Prince Charles was invested as Prince of Wales to express his opinion and major audience in the United States. and in the United Kingdom.
The document behind the closed door was extremely symbolic, the first time the British could see the monarchy without pumping and ceremony of public occasions.
If the Queen had chosen not to take this step, she risked the public perception that was directed against the monarchy, which could have been seen as an outdated institution.
However, the documentary was considered so intrusive and revealing to the Royal Family that he had to be retired for over 45 years and was locked at his Majesty's command in the BBC's safes.
The premise was that the public had an idea of life in the modern royal court in 1969.
The room followed the Royal Family around a full year, accompanying the Queen on tours in Chile and Brazil, while also touring Malta and Cambridge with Prince Charles.
They also shot more than 40 hours of film in Sandringham, Balmoral, Buckingham Palace, Windsor and Holyrood, as well as Royal Yacht, Royal Rail and Queen's Flight.
Princess Anne hates the documentary, saying later: "I never liked the idea of a" royal family ", I thought it was a rotten idea.
"The attention that has been brought from one to now has been a child, you simply do not need anything."
In the Netflix documentary "The Royals," Ingrid Seward, royal editor, described the Royal Family as a celebrity, adding, "They're our Hollywood."
The Narrator explains how the queen came to the idea of having a realistic show that would expose the royal family to all their glory.
"King George V saw the potential of the radio in the 1930s to reach the people and issued the first royal show," adds the narrator.
"So did Elizabeth II in 1969 when he allowed a TV documentary on the privacy of kings to be made."
Anne Sebba, Wall Street Simpson's biographer, explains: "It was totally revolutionary to go to their homes, see their breakfasts, meals, recognize them as an ordinary family.
"One of the reasons why it has not been presented so far is that they were too accustomed.
"If you take some of the glamor away, then removing why the royal family is so special was compulsive watching."
But some were terrified to discover intimate details that showed the Queen the following trends of everyday people.
It is understood some of the personal aspects that terrible spectators at the time would consider today as trivial.
The Queen and her counselors "realized that being too normal was as dangerous as if it were too different," according to the Smithsonian Channel, who recently uploaded a clip from the YouTube documentary.
The documentary was considered a success of public relations.
However, although it was a huge achievement, the queen ordered her to be placed in a vault and since then she has not been seen altogether.
