This is a couple of shots from a home movie, taken when far-flung members of the family come to visit grandmother at her place in the country and play with her dog. It's not particularly interesting. People walk around and the dog frisks about.
However, this is Queen Victoria, a couple of her children including the future Empress of Germany and the Tsar of Russia and his wife, taken, as the title indicates at Balmoral. There are also a couple of Ghurkas walking around offering security. Wouldn't want anything to happen to grandmother.
There's a yellow wash on the print that is posted to the BFI site. The experts at the Institute think it's original.
