Film of a royal visit by HM Elizabeth, Queen Consort of the United Kingdom, followed by various family scenes and portraits taken at the family home and garden, filmed by Ernest Shippam in the late 1930s.


The film opens with a brief view of HM Elizabeth, Queen Consort of the United Kingdom getting into a car while carrying flowers (later known as HM Elizabeth, The Queen Mother).

The second film shows a compilation of family scenes in a garden, that includes: a man carrying a young girl (Ann Shippam) on his shoulders; the group walking out of the house and down a garden path; a scene showing a woman scattering food scraps over the lawn to attract a large number of gulls flying above. The flock of birds land in the garden to eat the food.
