I really enjoy watching documentaries of all kinds. I love learning about current events as well as the past. I am immensely interested in The Kennedys, politicians and their families, and the British Royal Family. I have watched numerous documentaries of these topics among others.
YouTube has some great docs. The quality isn’t always great but I love that you can watch full documentaries there. Most recently I watched Britain’s Royal Weddings which was a two part documentary. It chronicles the evolution of the royal weddings and how TV allowed millions to witness these grand events all over the world. It goes as far back as the wedding of the Queen Mother in 1923 to Prince Albert up until Prince Charles’s second wedding to Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005.
Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon and Prince Albert, 1923
Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip, 1947
Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1960
Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips, 1973
Prince Charles and Princess Diana, 1981
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, 1986
Prince Charles and Camilla, 2005
The documentary interviews many people who were there at the weddings and they talk about their involvement and personal memories. It’s super interesting and has lots of great footage. If you’re a fan of weddings and the British royal family, I’d highly recommend this doc.
