Trivia

The race that Queen Elizabeth attends is the 1966 Queen Alexandra Stakes, traditionally the last (and most prestigious) race on the final day of the Royal Ascot meeting. The race was won by Panic, Apprentice (owned by Her Majesty) finished second, and Valentine Day finished third. Apprentice would return to the race the next year, with the same result: second place, this time to Alciglide. See more »

Goofs

Though the year is specifically mentioned as being 1967, on three occasions the cars depicted are from later times - at 28:20 minutes in, the blue Lincoln Continental that Queen Elizabeth II is riding in is a Mk5 from about 1977; at 32:40 the fourth car in the convey is a black Jaguar XJ6 Series 1 released in 1968 (or the virtually identical Daimler Sovereign Series 1 from 1969); and, finally, at 22:03, while the two black Citroen DS Series III 'swivel-headlight' examples could technically be included since they were launched in late 1967, it's more likely that they would have been the earlier Series II single-headlight variety.

Nothing. Broken his promises, crippled the economy, run this great country into the ground... .that he, Mountbatten, is surplus to requirements? It's not absurd. It's obscene.

Disappointing
3 December 2019 | by marybbloomSee all my reviews

As much as I appreciate Olivia Colman as a good actress she did convince me for a single moment that she is the queen, Queen Elisabeth. Sorry but she does not fit the role. The first 2 seasons with Claire Foy were much better in that sense at least.
