When the Queen is in residence, the Royal Standard is the flag that should be flying above Buckingham Palace. In this film, it is the Union Flag. This should only fly when the Queen isn't at home. It used to be the case that the Royal Standard should be the only flag above the palace and when the Queen was away, there would be nothing. However, there was an uproar following the death of Princess Diana as Queen Elizabeth II wasn't home so there was no flag to put at half mast. Since then, it's the Royal Standard when she's in, and the Union Flag when she's away. See more »

I do understand that people are disappointed when watching a Kids movie and expecting an exciting and challenging plot. What is wrong with you guys? Just because it says Steven Spielberg doesn't mean this is a movie that is specifically designed for your needs. I am 30+ and I like this movie a lot, watching it from a kids perspective you even understand the breakfast scene and I bet all kids would laugh at it. It is kinda sad, seeing how incapable some people are recognizing a movie for kids as such. This is a proper 8! I like the accent, the CGI is fitting, the story is for kids, so if you are not a kid, stfu. I can fully recommend it to anybody with an open mind, who is not looking for the kids version of an Captain America Civil War CGI fest.
