The Queen

If you have any interest in English history and the monarchy represented by Queen Elizabeth, do yourself a favor and watch (several times) the 2006 film entitled, "The Queen" starring Helen Mirren.  It's a masterful performance that depicts the days just after Dianah's death.

There is one scene that accurately portrays the sense of historic responsibility Queen Elizabeth shoulders each day of her long life.  For some background, see this link.  There are some vintage photographs I've never seen before.

As we colonials like to say, she is the real deal.
