Channel 5’s documentary on 10 March takes a look at the Queen’s first unrehearsed walkabout during her tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1954.
Speaking in the Channel 5 documentary, historian and author Robert Lacey said:
It is now stamped indelibly on the identity of the Royal Family, that’s what royal folk do, they go out and mingle.’
And there’s a real message there: “I care about you, you matter to me.” ‘We can now see that, consciously or not, she was reviving a technique of Elizabeth I.’
The programme explains how Elizabeth I was the first monarch to approach ordinary people and talk to them directly.
