A queen beyond question...
Verified purchase
I have watched several videos on Elizabeth 11 & I must say this is the Best. I have great respect for Queen Elizabeth for her commitment and integrity. Sadly, a number of her family members have not honored their positions with the same dedication as she. It must hurt her heart, but at the end of life we are only responsible for ourselves. I give this Gracious Lady 5 Stars along with this video

Simply the best view of the Queen I have ever seen. New information that helped me
Verified purchase
Very informative in that the Queen had wanted a relationship with Diana but Diana refused to have meals with her, we were led to believe differently in the series The Crown. I am so inspired by the Queen and am saddened by this newest nonsense with Megan and Harry, what a shame but she has gotten through much worse than this.

Pretty much what you'd expect; biased revisionism
Verified purchase
Apparently the Queen can do no wrong?
She is an amazing woman, and has clearly set duty as her primary focus. However, this is a woman not without faults and missteps. None of those were mentioned. She is as flawed as any other human, but that was ignored.
If you're a card-carrying royalist who can't see past the pageantry to the uncomfortable reality, this is the programme for you, and you will enjoy it very much.
If you like slightly more realism and slightly less adulation and revisionism, avoid this one. The spin they put on some of the Queen's actions made me roll my eyes in exasperation.

Very interesting biography.
Verified purchase
A fascinating biography. The woman is incredible. She has dedicated her whole life to her role as queen. After watching this video, youu will come out with a renewed sense of the woman and the 24/7 life she leads. When most of us prepare for retirement after 30 years, she has given 60+ years to the benefit of the people. This video biography dispelled all of my preconceived ideas. All we know is what the media feeds into. The woman is remarkable.
How many of us are still going strong at 86 with no evidence of retiring any time soon.

Hey, we're all human.

This was surprisingly a pretty good one to watch. It is informative as well as entertaining. I learned many things about Queen Elizabeth that I did not know. If you are curious about the life of royals during the previous century, then you need to watch this one. In her early years she was very down to earth and later in life she shows her grandmother side. My wife really enjoyed it as it does show the feminine side of the Queen.

As a yank, I have to admit I've learned about the royal family from afar. Some in the media have not been too kind. To find a balance in opinions has been difficult. This show strikes just such a balance. I found this program entertaining AND enlightening. 1 1/2 hours worth spending.

It was enjoyable to watch and to listen to. I have qreat respect for the Queen, and like many, many others, I love hearing about her life and the adventures and fallow times she's gone through. I was a little disappounted not to have heard anything I didn't already know. I'm hardly an expert so it was a surprise. Be great if a film maker could find something that the Queen enjoys or likes to do - even if it sounds mundain - and give it a special view. It was no doubt put together well, it was coherent with many lovely pics of the Queen. To anyone for whom this is a new subject, do watch it!

Queen Elizabeth II
Verified purchase
This was an excellent review of the life of Queen Elizabeth II beginning when she was but a toddler and into adult hood. Many people that have worked and still work closely with her give an insight as to how she came about the monarchy to include Charles and Diana, and all the way up to today. This one took me a couple of days to complete watching because I had to close it for sleep, but I continued with it until the end. Very interesting insights.
