An intimate, moving portrait of Queen Elizabeth and Tony Blair following the untimely death of Princess Diana. The Queen's restrained reaction causes a public relations debacle that Prime Minister Blair must defuse. The two struggle to reach a compromise between what was a private tragedy for the Royal family and the public's demand for an open display of mourning.
A provocative account of the story behind the sudden death of Princess Diana. In the wake of Diana's death, the very private and tradition-bound Queen Elizabeth II finds herself in conflict with the new Prime Minister, the slickly modern and image-conscious Tony Blair.
