Where to start is very difficult when it comes to what I can only describe as an amazing feat of production and acting. The cast are absolutely outstanding and are nothing but professional.
You can tell a lot of effort has been put into the research and accuracy of the story line. The attention to detail also has to be credited.
I can't find a fault and believe me I've tried. Having watched previous biopics/Dramas regarding royalty I will have to put this at the Top and that is including The Queen which again I would rate at 10/10.
In summery a must watch if you are looking for a great piece of production and a stimulating story line. I would recommend this to anyone.
