THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY: KING GEORGE VI, QUEEN ELIZABETH, ELIZABETH II, and MARGARET
All four members of the family signed this album cover specially made for recordings that commemorated Elizabeth II's 16th birthday
Album Cover Signed: "George R.I.", "Elizabeth R.", "Elizabeth", and "Margaret". A rare set of six BBC records, pressed after a Royal Command Performance of the radio show It's That Man Again (1939-1949). The show was the first Royal Command Performance of a radio show ever. The show was done on April 21, 1942, the day of Elizabeth II's 16th birthday. The signed album was given to star of the show Tommy Handley after the performance at Windsor Castle, the two princesses' home for five years during WWII. It's That Man Again satirized the rule of Adolf Hitler and boosted morale of the British home front during the war. A Royal Command Performance is when the reigning monarch specifically requests a show. Before this instance, it was typically theatrical or orchestral in medium. Includes six records that are of the performance on that date. Album cover toned and lightly worn. Frame lightly chipped. Otherwise, fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 37½x31¾.
