Why the Queen won't watch "The Queen"

Posted Feb 5, 2007 by Viga Boland

Has Queen Elizabeth seen the movie "The Queen"? No, and she won't either.
Seems for one thing, Her Majesty doesn't want to relive the whole Diana story, even though the Queen herself is portrayed positively in the movie.
Secondly, she has a problem with watching "herself" on screen even if it's not her. She apparently doesn't even like looking at videos taken of herself on Queenly business either.
But she has nothing against the movie itself. She just isn't a movie person. So I guess that says it all.
Says Peter Morgan, who won a Golden Globe for best screenplay in The Queen, of the Queen's stance:: "If the Queen hasn't seen it, that's very, very sensible. It speaks hugely in her favour."
