Storyline

BBC political and royal events commentator 'Andrew Marr' examines the life and role of the present British monarch at the occasion of the diamond jubilee, 60 years after her father's death put her on the throne of most Commonwealth nations. He examines how monarchy is a matter of (at least apparent) tradition and (preferably smooth, often unnoticed) change, to balance a heritage since the feudal age and the demands of the modern media age.

A Peak and a Praise
10 July 2012 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Andrew Marr's 'The Diamond Queen' is entertaining, but its hardly a documentary, and even less an examination like he claims. I'm a Finn, and for someone with no emotional or personal investment in the Queen what so ever, I found this series reeking like a prolonged promotional video for the British monarchy. I think there's nothing wrong with that, as long as people understand it and can then choose whether to watch it or not.

Like presented in the plot summary above, Marr tailed the Queen for little over a year around the world. He had virtually unlimited access to the royalty, politicians and other insiders. The series features multiple interviews with different protagonists around the Queen. Everybody praises her without exception. All criticism and objective studying of the monarchs and their actions throughout history are absent.

I liked the show because it gave a peak to the public day to day life of the Queen. On the other hand I was disappointed for the absence of questions and objective criticism from Brits who oppose the monarchy. I recommend the show to those who either like her or have at least neutral views on the matter.
