Did You Know?

Trivia:
While driving in the SUV at Balmoral, Charles asks the Queen, "Why do they hate us so much?" The original reply from the Queen was to correct Charles by saying, "You." Helen Mirren asked to cut the line, and it was changed to the more subtle, "Not 'us,' dear."See more »
Goofs:
Anachronisms: In both Government offices and Royal residences, many examples of the old-fashioned 'dial' telephone can be seen in use. These were generally phased out by the mid-1980s so it is highly unlikely that so many would still be in use in 1997, when the film is set.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Reporter:After weeks of campaigning on the road, Tony Blair and his family finally strolled the few hundred yards to the polling station this election day morning. Amongst the Labour faithful up and down the country, there is an enormous sense of pride in Mr. Blair's achievements, and the confidence that he is about to become the youngest prime minister this century.

The Irresistible Charm Of The Monarchy, 10 September 2006
Author: pierlorenzodangelo from Italy

No matter who you are, what's your political stand, or your social status, if any. You won't to turn the page or look away from the TV set if there is a piece of news concerning the royals, the British Royals in particular. I think it's human nature so there is nothing we can do about it. That's why it's amazing to realize that the Queen didn't quite understand that and how powerful and moving her surrendering to the fact. I don't know how to describe Helen Mirren's portrayal but I'm tempted to say already (I only saw the film last night) that is among the best I've ever seen. Riveting, totally fulfilling. The illusion is complete and without mockery or mimicry Helen Mirren gives us a full picture of someone who only exists in our minds as a title and in a series of constantly repeating images - hats, smiles, hand waves and holiday greetings from a TV screen - Congratulations to everyone concerned. A total triumph.
