While the monarch never grants one-to-one TV interviews, there have been several observational documentaries made about her and the royal family during her 64-year reign. With the exception, perhaps, of the BBC’s Monarchy: the Royal Family at Work, the trailer for which erroneously suggested the Queen walked out of a photoshoot in a huff, they’ve hardly been controversial. And they’re never intrusive – the Queen is not one for being caught off guard.
However, this lengthy tribute may give us a fresh insight into our monarch’s life and work as it boasts contributions from Prince Charles (who reveals he made her laugh when he told her, “Do you realise that when you reach 90, I shall have known you for 68 years”). There’s also input from Andrew, William, Kate and Harry, as well as David Cameron and familiar faces from the world of sport and entertainment.
We also see her attending a reception for the Rugby World Cup and the Chinese state visit. But, as always, it is the scenes of Her Majesty relaxing at home that are most interesting.
To celebrate Elizabeth II's 90th birthday, this documentary has enjoyed privileged access to the Queen and to many members of the Royal Family during the year in which she became the nation's longest-reigning monarch. Prince Charles and his sons William and Harry reveal how she has inspired them, while Prince Andrew and his daughters Beatrice and Eugenie explain what she means to them, and political leaders, celebrities and ordinary people from all over the world reflect on their experiences of meeting her.
