The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY -

three-parter The Di­a­mond Queen, helmed by An­drew Marr, ex­am­ines what HRH Queen El­iz­a­beth (pic­tured) does for her sub­jects in the UK and abroad. Marr ob­serves the day-to-day du­ties of the royal fam­ily and hears from the Duke of Cam­bridge (Prince Wil­liam), Prince Harry, the Earl of Wes­sex (Prince Ed­ward), the Princess Royal (Princess Anne) and Princess Eu­ge­nie about the re­mark­able skills the Queen has ac­quired in 60 years of walk­a­bouts, state vis­its and re­cep­tions. This pro­gram bears wit­ness to the en­ergy that she puts into ev­ery en­gage­ment, how­ever small, how­ever grand. The film looks closely at the in­flu­ence of the Queen’s grand­fa­ther, fa­ther and mother.
