The Majestic Life of Queen Elizabeth II
For sixty years Queen Elizabeth II has reigned as the Queen of Great Britain and the Commonwealth. Her reign has seen three different generations look upon her as one of the two young Princesses, then the reliant Queen of a changing Empire, to now, a stately grandmother of the two Princes, William and Harry. Queen Elizabeth II has witnessed incredible social, political and cultural change in her reign, all while retaining the purpose and dignity of the British Monarchy. Governments will come and go, but the Monarch will always remain a vital guardian of Britain's history, democracy, and cultural heritage. This documentary features contributions from Prime Ministers, senior politicians, Royal biographers, social historians and Royal correspondents. The Majestic Life of Queen Elizabeth II will illuminate the career of the Queen who has served her nation throughout its trials and tribulations.

From the death of her father King George VI, to the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, this is the true story of how the young Princess became a great Queen.
