I am not a big fan of the monarchy. However, I grant them the respect that is demanded. As for the viewing of this film, which chronicles the celebrated life of one of their set, the (current) second longest reigning monarch, be a fan or not, respect the monarchy or not, the experience for this viewer is essentially tedium and a recognition of the outdated-ness and overrated-ness of the institution. On the bright side, the script was, I believe, realistic. And no flaw to the acting performances.
