Movies and TV series about Elizabeth II

Elizabeth II went down in history as the longest-reigning Queen of Great Britain. But this is not the only interesting fact from the biography of the ruler, who would have turned 98 on April 21. Her Majesty's eventful life inspired many directors to create cult biopics and even animated comedies.

OBOZ.UA has collected 5 best films about the life of the late British Queen, according to the editorial staff. Actresses who had the honor to embody the image of Elizabeth II on the screens often received the highest film awards for their roles.

This, for example, happened to Helen Mirren. She transformed into Elizabeth II in the movie The Queen (2006) and received an Oscar, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and the Volpi Cup at the Venice Film Festival.

The film depicts the life of the British royal family in the first few days after the tragic death of Princess Diana. After the news of the accident, Elizabeth II and her motherless grandsons Harry and William retired to their country residence and prepared to say goodbye to their daughter-in-law. The film will tell the story of this difficult period in the ruler's life, as well as the role of Prime Minister Tony Blair in informing the people of England.

The Crown series, the first season of which was released in 2016 on Netflix, is considered one of the most successful projects of our time. It covers the period of Elizabeth II's life from early childhood until 2002, when the Queen Mother died. The biographical series, which also includes fictional scenes, tells about all the significant moments in the monarch's life.

The fourth season was released in the summer of 2022.

The movie A Royal Night Out (2015) will tell us what Elizabeth was like before she became Queen of the United Kingdom. In the film, the viewer meets the heiress to the throne and her sister Margret, who, having received permission from her father, go to central London in May 1945 to celebrate the victory over Nazi Germany with the British people.

Elizabeth II is a well-known lover of corgi dogs. So it is not surprising that the animators decided to dedicate a cartoon to her. The Queen’s Corgi (2018), a funny animated story about the adventures of the Queen's pet Rex, has already won the sympathy of viewers around the world.

The King's Speech (2010) is an Oscar-winning feature film about the great monarch, Elizabeth's father George VI. Reluctantly accepting the throne after his elder brother abdicates, he faces his greatest challenge: his fear of public speaking and his stutter. The audience was shown the flip side of a successful ruler, for which the film received high praise and many awards.

In addition, the film became another opportunity to learn about the childhood of the future Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain.

As a reminder, Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8, 2022, at the age of 97. She spent her last hours surrounded by all her children and grandchildren who came to Scotland. After Elizabeth II's death, her eldest son Charles became the new King of Great Britain.
