A new video featuring the wedding of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip has been released. The historic footage, which was filmed in 1947, shows the best moments from the reigning monarch's big day – including the iconic moment that she and Philip greeted crowds from the palace balcony as newlyweds.
The couple, who started to exchange love letters when Elizabeth was a young teenager, had known each other for years, and married on 20 November at Westminster Abbey – the same venue where Prince William and Kate wed in 2011.
The black-and-white video shows the Queen, who was then Princess Elizabeth, wearing her beautiful soft white satin gown. The dress was designed by Britain's Norman Hartnell, who was known for his work with the royal family.
