Attending Margaret's wedding--the dress is part of the exhibit talked about in a recent Majesty magazine to commemorate EII's 80th birthday.

Not sure if this is the same documentary as that mentioned by aussiechick a few posts earlier (probably is), but for those who are able to get the CBC, 'The Queen at 80' is being broadcast on Sunday evening (18th June) at 8:00pm.

A brief description from the CBC website:

"Major documentaries examining the working life of Queen Elizabeth II in her 80th year.  In a unique project, cameras follow a cross section of the Queen's engagements over the period of one year to mark the occasion of her 80th birthday on April 21 2006.  The films examine her history and present the unfolding of a year in the Queen's life."

Seems to me that between this doc and the recent one about a year in the life of Windsor Castle, Her Majesty must be getting used to having cameras underfoot...
