Anyone else watch this earlier on BBC1? What did you think? I enjoyed it immensely. I admit to being a monarchist, although never a great fan of Prince Charles. But his tribute was perfect I thought, and to some extent has altered my opinion of him. Some wonderful personal family film footage that obviously meant a lot to him....and I confess brought a tear to my eye....but then I am a big softie :)

Wonderful programme, brought tears to my eyes, but then I love our Queen anyway and wish her well for her Diamond Jubilee. Seeing Charles so emotional was an eye-opener.
I also agree with one of the posts on here, Anne is not ageing as well as her Mum !

Agreed; we thought the whole tribute was really wonderful and we saw a side to Prince Charles that I didn't think existed! Loved the film of Charles, Anne and Philip (!) rolling down the slope - just like real children!
I thought it would be a pile of ****, but actually really enjoyed it. It was quite touching in places.
Totally agree, thought it was a lovely tribute to his Mother 'The Queen' on her Diamond Jubilee. I actually saw a genuine smile & happiness when he spoke of his Mother and all the memories he re-called. He looked so proud. I really enjoyed the programme.
it seemed to me like watching the extended version of someone showing you their holiday slides and wibbling on "look it's mama on a horse" "here we are i n a park" "this is us eating some icecream"
bednobs - this is exactly what is was, showing there is and has been a more down to earth and personal side to the queen and her family. The scenes of Mountbattens funeral show the deep love Charles had for this great man
Yes, I watched it and enjoyed it very much. It had warmth and genuine love and admiration. The home movies were very good to see and Charles' laughter at his younger self was very infectious. A fitting tribute because it largely showed the Queen relaxed and enjoying her family-something I think we had all forgotten. It makes you think what she had to put to one side when she became Queen at such a young age.
i really enjoyed it! So moving. And its when you see they are quite normal. Am now watching the one on itv +1 but alan titmarsh is grating on me.
I enjoyed it and I'm not even English....
I got I'm a hump and turned the TV off when I realised they had replaced Eastenders for it.
titmorass does that to you - Christ, I haven't seen a more Brylcream-ed and smoothie royal pandering git than him at the 1st day of Chelsea last week.
anyone watching Graeme Norton as I type ? He has just featured AYG in full panorama glory........what a sight.....
We thought the Charles tribute was superb showing a side of him he unfortunately keeps hidden. I'm sure that at more than one point his eyes were very glittery, almost moist. The shot of the Queen on the plane coming back from Kenya was so poignant.
The ITV Titchmarsh programme was awful, so badly edited with the same thing being repeated. Am I alone in thinking that making public the letters between the Queen and her parents about her marriage should be kept until after they're all dead, seemed a bit tasteless.
Loved the Prince Charles tribute, but missed the first half. Does anyone know if or when its being repeated?
I really can't be described as a fan of the royal family- but that is in their official capacity. This program showed them as simply a family and as such was quite touching, but as an individual I've always quite liked Prince Charles anyway and this reinforced that.
Never really liked Prince Charles but quite warmed to him while watching this programme - proves he does have a sense of humour after all............ loved his reaction to seeing all the films of childhood and how he kept laughing at them - do you really think it was the first time he'd seen them? (as he said)
Zebo - I like the Alan Titchmarsh programme, I thought the letters were great, so touching - they must have agreed to having their personal writings read out on TV! I have kept all mine and Hubbys - from 1966/7 but I would be mortified if they were made public ;o)
where was Prince Edward?
Not being a royalist, I watched a repeat of Millionaire on challenge.
I wondered that 888 ...................... and hate to say this but didn't Princess Anne look old, her mother is ageing better than her .........
Didn't see BBC1 programme but watched ITV programme with Alan Titchmarsh, thoroughly enjoyed it.
