Ahead of the 60th anniversary of her rise to the throne, archive footage has been released of the Queen as a young girl which has not been seen for 50 years.
The British Council has released two videos online, 1941's Royal Road and Westminster Abbey, from 1945, showing the Queen as a young girl and documenting the family's strife during the Second World War.
The earlier film, which you can watch above, is a rare chance to see Windsor Castle 'behind the scene', as the Queen, then only 15, her younger sister Margaret, the Queen Mother and her father King George VI together with their ubiquitous corgis in the gardens of the castle.
Prince Charles has recently released home videos of the next generation of the royal family, in a BBC documentary to be aired on Friday ahead of the celebrations.
This weekend sees an array of events in honour of the Queen's diamond anniversary of her reign.
A special concert, held in front of Buckingham Palace, will be held on the Saturday, with a 1,000 boat pageant the following day.
Tuesday will see a service at St. Paul's Cathedral followed by a procession through London, featuring soldiers from the Household Cavalry.
