Very In-depth
10 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Whether you like the monarchy or not, the show is so very in-depth. The way in which the filming was done, at times you wonder how they were able to get so much done without being in the way.

BBC should be applauded for the depth of information that they put into this show and yes it needed to be put into several shows and not into one show, as there is so much information to offer.

The behind the scenes access was well worth the time to watch it all. I know that many people both in England and abroad, would like to see the monarchy abolished and this show is not about either praising her. but in just showing you what happens in the many days in the life of the Queen.
