That was a private visit. Count Alfred Potocki of Łańcut - one of the wealthiest man in prewar Poland  - send a private invitation to Their Majesties King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, but they were too busy, so Duke and Duchess of Kent came to Poland instead of the royal couple. Besides Łańcut and Kraków, they also visited Katowice, where lived Zofia Poklewska Koziełł - a friend of the Duchess, which she knew from the time when she lived in Paris.

I found the same clip on British Pathe:
