The following components make up the pre- 2021 packages available to Recipients:

1. Personalised ‘Path of Honour’ film (click to expand/contract)

( Pre – March 2020 )A fully personalised Path of Honour film with all the footage of the Recipient, and their guests, filmed throughout the morning of the Investiture, (supplied either on DVD or via an online streaming service).
Our Path of Honour film is only available to Recipients and begins with a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the meticulous preparations for an Investiture ceremony. You and your guests are filmed at various areas throughout the Royal residence. For example, at Buckingham Palace it includes the briefings of Recipients in the Green Drawing Room and the Picture Gallery. Guests are filmed entering the Ballroom via the Grand Staircase and East Gallery, and as a Gentleman Usher carries out the briefing in the Ballroom.

We capture the scene as Recipients gather together and are briefed by the Comptroller, the Lord Chamberlain’s Office, before being led through to the Ballroom, where your Investiture is discreetly captured by a further six remotely controlled cameras. Subsequently, in our studios, your Investiture sequence is individually edited, together with your name and citation, as announced by the Lord Chamberlain. This, along with shots of you and your guests leaving together, completes the thirty minute film “Path of Honour” providing a unique record of your own Investiture day.
Individually crafted “Path of Honour” films are dispatched, or uploaded ready for streaming, four to six weeks after the investiture.
