It's nothing like that it tells a very complicated story or a movie that you won't believe your eyes. It's simple but allows you to think of lot of things.
In grief of princess Diana the Royal family,specially queen Elizabeth ,her daughter and husband doesn't seem to be very much moved by it and the QUEEN refuses to contribute to the funeral of queen Diana in a royal manner. And the story is how Tony Blair,the prime minister of that certain era tries to make the queen look at the situation from the point of the view of the people in the country,and unwillingly she looks at it that way without meaning a thing she did but to make herself some respect over the population in Britain. She does everything as the prime minister says without lowering a word of it because she things she doesn't have a choice. In the movie it's not like that she's helpless with the situation but she's being sarcastic all the way.
It's defenitely a great work in being able to show in the movie how the family reacts to the situation of princess Diana's death. They just try not to miss their everyday routine while the whole nation kneel down before the death of the princess. The royal family doesn't take it to a dime. In the real time when this death happened i heard a lot of rumours that the party which is guilty on the death of princess Diana is the royal family. Actually i heard that the queen planned the death of the princess.Lot of things went around the world those days.
Apart from that if you keep a menatality that the queen is actually guilty you might not miss it in this movie. She doesn't care if Diana's dead. The crowd had written over some words in pieces of papers with flowers saying things like "they don't deserve you"...."they have your blood on their hands" and some others. The queen doesn't seemed to be much paniced by the response of the crowd towards her reaction to princess Diana's death. She plays it like an ending story that she'll never think of again. Do what it's necessary to keep the connection between the palace and the people and get rid of the problems. It's a way....i don't know but the movie showed it brilliant.
On a whole different angle the fact that the behaviour of the Queen on the situation of a death could be justifiable in the sense if you look at the whole situation on the perspective of the queen,it's a bit of an acute angle but if you for a moment think that way may be you'll find a way to enter the soul of the queen ...actually you'll understand who she really is. She calls off for a private funeral because she thinks it has to be personal and she doesn't manage to understand the circumstances of the people because she's a queen and that was how she grew up. My sister believes that the actions determined by the queen on her own perspective does serve her soul and her way of livinghood. That could be actually right.
Then again ,after a whole lot of thinking i came to a conclusion...You can actually look at it..the both ways. If you look at in the acute angle..i mean in the perspective of the queen ,you might feel that it's right..what she did.
But if you look at the grieving crowd first and then at the queen you will be forced to develop the fact that the queen could have paid some authentic attetion upon what people believe on the death of the princess...like how the fellow representatives of the country look at this certain situation. U will feel that a human being could not be so heartless. That's a question between human mentality dealing between every person and the way one believes in a certain thing. You can look at it in different ways. That is where it always leaves an argument. Now i'm kind of both.
But what's actually to consider is whether it's right to stick to your ownself believing in one thing without letting any other suggestions come into you to see whether they look good on the side of everyone. May be the person the queen wanted out of Diana wasn't who the people believed.
