The Queen is a docudrama minseries that highlights the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. I have selected the clips in which Diana appears in the series. This film was orignally aired in 2004 and I missed it but it was shown again on BBC america at the time of William and Catherine’s wedding. The Actress who protrayed Diana dida fair job of portraying Diana in a decent fashion although it wasn’t my favorite portrayal of the princess.
Diana appeared In the episode The Enemy Within
In 1992, the Queen insists that her family should pay tax, in order to be seen as ‘doing their bit’. But there are family problems. Frisky daughter-in-law Sarah has left Prince Andrew and ended up on tabloid front pages in a saucy pose with her financial advisor. This leaves unhappy Princess Diana, betrayed by her husband Charles, gaining public sympathy through a book and television interview. Once more public opinion seems to want the end of the monarchy and, to add to Elizabeth’s problems, part of Windsor Castle burns down. 1992 truly turns out to be her ‘annus horribilus’ with the marriage of Charles and Diana, which once seemed so romantic, coming to an end.
