Queen Elizabeth II was on the throne since February 6, 1952. At that time, the position of the monarchy within British society has changed dramatically and is almost unrecognizable as it was seen in the fifties. Together with Prince Felipe, he oversaw the modernization that promoted Corona in the 20th century, and his decision to host TV cameras in the 60s was a great step in that direction.
Richard Cawston's BBC documentary team followed the Royal Family for 18 months as they went to everyday life.
His activities ranged from Prince Felipe to grill sausage at Balmoral to the Queen, making small conversations with American president Richard Nixon.
It was originally issued on June 21, 1969, the year in which Prince Charles was invested as Prince of Wales, to make critical and important hearings in the United States and U.K.
The documentary behind the closed door was very symbolic since it was the first time that the British could see the monarchy without the pump and the ceremony of public occasions.
If the queen had chosen not to take that step, she risked the perception of the public against the monarchy, which could be seen as an outdated institution.
However, the documentary was considered as intrusive and revealing by the Royal Family that he had to be retired for more than 45 years and was locked in command of Her Majesty in the vaults of the BBC.
The premise was for the public to get an idea of what life was in the modern real court of 1969.
The cameras followed the royal family for a whole year, accompanying the Queen on tour through Chile and Brazil, while also traveling to Malta and Cambridge with Prince Charles.
They also filmed more than 40 hours of filming in Sandringham, Balmoral, Buckingham Palace, Windsor and Holyrood, as well as in the Royal Yacht, the Royal Train and the Queen's Aircraft.
Princess Anne hated the documentary, saying later: "I never liked the idea of" Royal Family ", I thought it was a rotten idea.
"The attention that has been taken to one of them since being a child simply did not need more."
In the Netflix documentary "The Royals", Ingrid Seward, the royal editor, described the Royal Family as famous, adding: "I am our Hollywood."
The narrator explains how the Queen came to the idea of having a reality show that would expose the Royal Family in all its glory.
"King George V saw the potential of radio in the 1930s to reach the town and delivered the first real emission," adds the narrator.
"This happened Elizabeth II, in 1969, when they allowed him to make a television documentary about the private life of the kings."
Anne Sebba, the biographer of Wallis Simpson, explains: "This was completely revolutionary, to enter their homes to see breakfasts, meals, to recognize them as a common family.
"One of the reasons why it has not been proven before, is because they were too common.
"If you bring some glamor to the other side, then your elimination of why the Royal Family is so special was a compulsive vision."
But some were horrified to discover intimate details that showed the queen following the tendencies of all people.
It is understood some of the personal aspects that viewers horrified at the time would be seen as trivial nowadays.
The Queen and her advisers "understood that being too normal was as dangerous as too different," according to the Smithsonian channel who recently uploaded a documentary clip on YouTube.
The documentary was considered a success in public relations.
However, although it was a great achievement, the Queen ordered her to be ruined in a vault and has never been seen in its entirety ever since.
