The Queen

As I have stated before, I am not a particular fan of the Royal Family, but that said I am not a Republican and I have a high regard for the Queen.
So it is with some interest that I am intrigued by Stephen Frears new film The Queen.
I hope to see it soon because the impression I have got from the various reviews is that it doesn't sensationalise the immediate events following Princess Diana's death, but it does treat the whole subject matter with dignity and respect and show the monarch as someone who not only holds the decent but restrained values of a past generation, but who also felt protective of her family in giving them the space to grieve in private, as opposed to the emotional fascism of the press who whipped up a "Show Us You Care.." campaign against them, following attacks on their pereived role in the death of Princess Diana.
It looks like it will make interesting viewing
