The Diamond Queen
Andrew Marr looks at the life and reign of HM Queen Elizabeth II as she celebrates her Diamond Jubilee - 60 years as Queen of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Speaking to the people that really know her best, Marr is granted unique access to Princes William and Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, the Earl of Wessex, the Duke of York, the Princess Royal, David Cameron, Tony Blair and President Obama.
The series looks at the day-to-day life of a Queen who is clearly dedicated to her family and her country and reflects on the personal and political challenges Her Majesty has faced, including coming to the throne as a 25-year-old, the annus horribilis of 1992 and the wedding of her grandson, William, in 2011. With his customary insight and wit, Andrew Marr discovers the hidden side of our most enduring - and enigmatic - monarch, who has outlasted Prime Ministers and Presidents, and has adapted and modernised to ensure the Royal Family is relevant and vital in the 21st Century
