A Year with the Queen

Author: Robert Hardman
Stars: 4
Review by: Mandy Apgar

Good, but not as personable as the companion miniseries, "Monarchy: Royal Family at Work" which it is paired to. But it is meant to show what the British royals actually "do" - what their jobs are, duties, efforts in supporting the country, etc. and for a year crews filmed the Queen especially with this in mind. A state visit to then President Bush is covered, various tours and other international affairs, and a bit of what it is like to live in and run the royal residences on a daily basis.
