Trivia

Elizabeth is seen sitting on a chair towards the end and is heard to speak a few words when someone moves her hand away from her mouth. However, history records that Elizabeth lay on cushions on the floor and couldn't be persuaded to move to her bed, and was said to be beyond the power of speech at this point. See more »
