However, it also featured some never-before-seen footage of the Queen launching her father’s boat, Britannia.

The colour footage showed the Queen launching her father’s royal yacht, Britannia, which he never got to see before his death.

It sailed more than a million miles around the world, and it was initially built for her father, however, he died before he could see it on the water.

Britannia proved to be a very popular name, and it was revealed in the programme that the name was not common knowledge until the Queen announced it.

The Queen was not the first to sail in the yacht, it was actually her son and daughter, Prince Charles and Princess Anne were the first two Royals on the boat.

There were also interviews with members of the Royal family including the Queen’s son, Prince Charles.

“When you think of how young my mother was, after my father’s death, it was quite remarkable.”

“It appeared effortless, but it really wasn’t,” said Prince Charles.

The documentary also featured some of the newer Royals, such as Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle.

The programme also featured the goings on in Buckingham Palace, which included cooks from the Caribbean who have prepared special meals for the Queen.

Invited by the Queen, the group were rising stars in the hospitality industry, and were selected for the “work placement of a lifetime”.

The placement includes six weeks training with the household staff at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle.

In the scene, the master of the household described the group as “eight fabulous, fabulous young people."

The documentary also revealed what it is actually like to work for the Queen.

A member of the Royal Household, Claudine Jeffrey from Antigua said: “It’s a fun place to work, I’d say it’s an adventure every day.

"Everyday there is something different, you never find that you’re doing the same things.

"So that’s really amazing because I love a challenge and I don't like to be bored.

"I’ve followed the Queen for a while… and to find myself in Buckingham Palace, it’s beyond my wildest imaginations."
