The official ticketing for the seats in the stands on the day of the Jubilee was plagued by fraudsters. However, even those lucky enough to purchase a genuine ticket noted the high prices. This cameraman – William Hunt, working on behalf of RW Paul - must have paid a great deal for this position. Here, he films the Guards arriving at St Paul’s followed – for the briefest moment at the end of the film - by the foreign and English princes.
