The Netflix period Royal drama of "The Crown" filming series 2, at Woodchester Park and Mansion in Gloucestershire, a National Trust property.
Flashback scene as Woodchester Mansion plays Gordonstoun School founded in 1934 by German educator Kurt Hahn.
In 1933, Prince Philip was sent to Schule Schloss Salem in Germany, which practised outdoor learning and adventure education. Salem's Jewish founder, Kurt Hahn fled persecution during the war and in 1934 founded Gordonstoun Public School in Scotland. After two terms at Salem, Prince Philip moved to Gordonstoun.
In the scenes the boys are building a wall, and doing physical education

The boy in the green corduroy jacket is a young Prince Philip and the woman is his mother, Princess Alice of Battenburg.
Prince Philip enjoyed his time at the institution, and the teaching of skills and outdoor sports gave rise to the founding of the Duke of Edinghburgh Award Scheme.

Based on the philosophy of Hahn, founder and headmaster of Gordonstoun School in Scotland, the Award was designed around four sections: Rescue & Public Service Training, the Expedition, Pursuits & Projects, and Fitness.
