After the death of Diana, the Royal family and the public demanded an overt display of mourning, but the Queen and Prime Minister Tony Blair were able to reach a compromise between what was a private tragedy for the Royal family and the public's demand for an overt display of mourning.
This Movie Is About.
The Queen is a 2006 biographical drama film directed by Stephen Frears and written by Peter Morgan. It stars Helen Mirren in the title role of Queen Elizabeth II. The film depicts the response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales on 31 August 1997.Initially, the Royal Family regard Diana's death as a private affair and thus not to be treated as an official royal death. This was in contrast with the views of Prime Minister Tony Blair and Diana's ex-husband, Prince Charles, who favour the general public's desire for an official expression of grief. Matters were further complicated by the media, royal protocol regarding Diana's official status, and wider issues about republicanism. The film's production and release coincided with a revival of favourable public sentiment in respect to the monarchy, a downturn in fortunes for Tony Blair, and the British inquest into the death of Diana. Michael Sheen reprised his role as Blair from 2003's The Deal.The Queen garnered general critical and popular acclaim for Mirren playing the title role, which earned her numerous awards, namely the Academy Award, the BAFTA Award, and the Golden Globe Award. Mirren was praised by the Queen herself and was invited to dinner at Buckingham Palace. However, Mirren could not attend due to filming commitments in Hollywood.
