Richard Nelson’s review published on Letterboxd:
“Oh, another plaque.”
One particularly fascinating thing about this documentary is that, when it was produced, it was more or less current affairs, but now — a full three decades later — it’s an historical document about the day-to-day life of the Queen in the early ’90s. Of course, when it comes to the monarchy, some things never change.
Aside from that, it’s a very personal portrait of the Queen as a person. The distancing ‘magic’ of royalty has remained across the decades, and yet here we get a sense of Her Maj as a (relatively) normal woman. Fitting viewing right now as a tribute, then.
