The Queen and Duke visited Barbados, British Guiana, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, Saint Lucia, Dominica, Montserrat, Antigua, Saint Christopher-Nevis-Anguilla, British Virgin Islands, Turks and Caicos Islands, Bahamas, Jamaica, which were featured in the film:

Throughout the month-long Tour, there were countless Gala Dinners and Receptions in the fifteen Commonwealth Realms and Crown Colonies and Territories, as well as Dinners on the Royal Yacht Britannia, and many glittering State Openings of Parliament, particularly in Trinidad and in Jamaica. However, despite the plethora of Gala Events, it seems the Queen only brought with her the Girls of Great Britain & Ireland Tiara and her Belgian Sapphire Tiara.
