Visit of Prince Henry

1927 , Ipswich (Suffolk)

An amateur account of Prince Henry's visit to Ipswich in 1927.

A local film of HRH Prince Henry, later the Duke of Gloucester, visiting Ipswich for the opening of the Gainsborough bicentenary exhibition in 1927. The film begins with scenes of Prince Henry and the Mayor, Mr. W. Rowley Elliston, leaving the car. There are shots of children in the crowd waving flags; some Union flags, some St. George's flags. The Prince and his party, accompanied by mounted police, drive past the children who cheer and wave their flags. There are scenes of the crowds in the Cornhill. The official party is filmed entering the Town Hall. The next sequence is of Bourne Park where the crowd stand for the National Anthem and seemingly shouting "God Save the King!" at the end. Speeches are made by the Mayor and the Prince. The film shows the Prince planting a tree. The final scenes are of the crowd in the park after the Prince's departure. A local dignitary is filmed leaving and the crowd are shown dispersing. Another movie camera, probably the professional Gaumont Graphic newsreel camera, is filmed.
