From her maiden voyage through 40 years and more than a million miles of world travel, the royal yacht Britannia has been a majestic presence in ports from Boston Harbor to South Africa. Go below decks with BBC cameras as they explore the royal chambers and inner workings of Britain's floating palace. Watch the split-second timing and complex logistics necessary to stage a state dinner for 200 royal guests from three decks below. As Britannia's sea-going days draw to a close, royals like the Duke of Edinburgh recall past voyages, illustrated through rare archival footage, and explain the ship's origins. Walk Britannia's decks with foreign visitors and royal family members for perhaps the last time--and explore this floating time capsule of 1950's technology, pageantry, and royal history.
