Yes, I shall jump on the royal wedding bandwagon, and I will enjoy myself, most definitely.
The Royal Wedding was yesterday (as of press time) and oh, joy, was it such a marvelous occasion, and every single soul in most corners of the world paid attention, yada, yada, yada. (Though if one fails to notice the maid-of-honor, I would suggest suicide to be the most reasonable of all punishments. Wink.)
Yet one thing grasped my attention. How the world never forgot about the late Princess Diana. How the media kept mentioning Kate Middleton following her footsteps into royalty, and how certain channels kept playing footages of when she was alive. How the world was moved by her presence, and unfortunately, her demise.
To which this moved me to watch: The Queen.
Stars Dame Hellen Mirren, Michael Sheen and a list of others (I'm pretty sure most of you out there are familiar with the concept of the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), and if you are not, as before mentioned, suicide should be most appropriate of you.)
An inside look to the Royal Family as they face the crisis that has never before befallen upon them, and how they are to deal with it, keeping the lid on the pressure of the British people whilst maintaining the honor of the British Royalty themselves. Their side of the story as to what happened. Brilliant piece, one must say. Both Sheen and Mirren played their part most effectively and managed to move the audience's heart. A story that was never told.
(Post-watching: Can't help but think that the late Princess Diana DID, in a way or another, tarnish the Royal Family's image. But we are only human, and one must make the best of what is given to us.)
