A notorious fly-on-the-wall documentary about the royal family that was said to have been forbidden by Queen Elizabeth decades ago was mysteriously leaked on YouTube this week.

The “Royal Family”, a documentary of BBC which was aired in 1969. The film provided a first-time look inside the life of Queen Elizabeth and her royal family.

Prince Philip thought it would open the doors to what being a member of the royal family was all about, but the Queen was said to have regretted the decision to film the documentary and it has largely been locked away ever since.

Not until this week when someone uploaded the film on YouTube and gathered a lot of attention from the public eyes. It was immediately taken down on Thursday before appearing again briefly on Friday morning.
