The collection is a very candid profile of a number of royals, particularly Prince Charles and the Princes William and Harry.
Scenes from polo matches, social events and low-profile occasions illustrate a side of royal life and behaviour that is rarely seen.
It also includes footage of Olympic hopeful Zara Phillips competing at horse trials with her mother Princess Anne, and people associated with the family such as Camilla Parker-Bowles.
"The fascinating thing about this footage is that the royals are not on their guard, as they so often are at public occasions," said Christopher O'Hearn, APTN's Head of Content Development.
"So we see Harry showing his anger during a polo match, or he and William joking around with their father, like any young man or any family."
The footage comes from Richard Wintle of Calyx TV, an independent agency and production company.
"We have spent the last six years gathering TV footage of the UK and other royals and celebrities in situations where there are often very few other cameras around," said Mr Wintle.
"We believe it will be of great interest to anyone looking for a different, more private view on people who are so much in the public spotlight."
The footage is available non-exclusively from APTN Library for worldwide licensing, and further items will be added as they become available.
