Product Description

Fleet Street royal correspondent Robert Hardman presents this intimate portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Granted rare and unprecedented access to the Queen's world, Hardman provides a fascinating insight into the private and public lives of the longest reigning monarch since Queen Victoria, who, despite witnessing huge technological, political and societal changes over the course of her reign, remains a calm and steadying influence at the heart of British life.

Product Description

"...a truly intimate and enchanting portrait of our Monarch" Daily Mail In this fascinating Film we enjoy unrivalled access to one of the most famous women on earth, Queen Elizabeth II, during one of the most momentous periods in modern royal history. Not only are we treated to a fascinating inside view of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee - and her sensational debut as a Bond girl - but we go inside Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Balmoral to see how she runs the modern monarchy today. Whether she is discussing economic meltdown with her Prime Minister or Hallowe'en pumpkins with her fl orist, Our Queen shows us the private as well as the public side of a Sovereign whose 60th anniversary on the throne was celebrated by millions around the world. Hear members of the Royal Family paying tribute to 'Mummy' and to 'Granny'. See her closest staff in action as she invites world leaders to stay or throws a party for Britain's Olympic heroes - not to mention an extraordinary lunch for all the world's monarchies. Made by the award-winning producer and director, Michael Waldman, and the best-selling royal author, Robert Hardman, Our Queen is an enthralling insight into the extraordinary world of this remarkable woman.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must see for loyal subjects of Our Queen! 11 May 2013
By Cee

If you are looking for a documentary-style movie on HRH, then this is a great one!
After having read Robery Hardman's book entitled "Our Queen," it would only make sense to follow it up with a DVD!

There is some footage in here that one has not seen in other videos of the Queen.
This particular video follows the Queen throughout her Diamond Jubilee year.

I didn't want it to end!

Only drawback is that it hasn't been made more available to international amazon sites.....I had to e-mail ITV (the makers) to get this link to amazon.uk

God Save the Queen!

OUR QUEEN (Prod./Dir. Michael Waldman, 2013, 95 minutes) is set in 2012, a bit after the Olympics and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It is an all-around beautiful sort of 'catch-up' on the heels of the gorgeous 3-hour documentary hosted by Andrew Marr, The Diamond Queen - Presented by Andrew Marr (BBC) [DVD] (see my review).

In many ways it picks up where DIAMOND QUEEN left off--but do not expect much more behind-the-scenes if you are already a fan of such wonderful documentaries. Her Majesty sets boundaries and those are unassailable. This film does seem to dive deeper than any I have seen before, and I've seen 'em all. (For example, I loved the comments about the short film shown before the Olympics, in which the Queen starred alongside Daniel Craig.)

This film, as per usual, will irritate the viewer with its complete omission of Prince Harry, yet thankfully there is little of Camilla and Kate here. This shouts OUR QUEEN, not OUR COMMONERS. Get this: it is stunning and revelatory even to the biggest Buckingham-head.

What did I love most especially? The interior/exterior shots of Balmoral, usually off-limits. Even Marr couldn't get in THERE properly!

I enjoyed watching this DVD. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the background work that the Queen and her staff do before royal events.

Verified Purchase
Okay, I'm one of the few Americans able enjoy PAL DVDs intended for the European market. Why, to see DVDs just like this. It is delightful. If you are looking for a sweet story of the Queen's Jubilee year, this is it.
