This video does not show Queen Elizabeth II 'on visit to personal gold vault'

A video that shows images of Britain's late Queen Elizabeth II visiting a vault with stacks of gold bars has been viewed millions of times alongside a claim that it shows the late monarch's gold deposit. This is false. While the British royal family is estimated to hold hundreds of millions of dollars in assets, the video shows the late monarch on a visit to the Bank of England's gold vaults in 2012. The UK central bank is wholly owned by the UK government, not the royal family.
