Koninklijk bezoek Groningen

Working footage of a royal visit to Groningen.

In 1922, Queen Wilhelmina, Prince Henry and Princess Juliana visited Groningen. Filmmaker Willy Mullens shot diverse footage of the event, showing the royal family riding through the city, attending church services, and visiting a gathering on an athletic field. Mullens also filmed a blind girl offering flowers to the Queen.

The filmmaker himself – with camera in hand – also briefly appears in the frame.
