I'm really looking forward to seeing this! It sounds interesting, but I really hope they do a good job with it. I find it kind of neat that Princess Beatrice, a real descendant of Victoria, will be making a cameo appearance.

By the way, Emily Blunt was in the well-known movie, The Devil Wears Prada, where she played the mean assistant, and got a good bit of praise for the roll.

Ooh, a new film about Victoria!

I became fascinated with Victoria and Albert after watching the miniseries. Their love story is inspiring. And the way they loved...stormy and deep. What a connection.

I have to admit to a small crush on Prince Albert; what an accomplished, intelligent man who also wasn't afraid to feel.

Looks really promising! The cast looks great! Jim Broadbent, Miranda Richardson and Paul Bettany. I don't know who Emily Blunt is, but hopefully she lives up to the standards of Victoria Hamilton in the 2001 miniseries. I'm kind of disappointed that Rupert Friend is playing Prince Albert; I don't care for him very much. I'd rather Jonathan Firth reprise his role
Did you see "The Devil Wears Prada"? Emily Blunt was the English girl who was the other assistant to Meryl Streep. She doesn't look much like Victoria, but she's a pretty good actress.

According to the article morhange posted Sarah, Duchess of York is co-producing this film.

Princess Anne Wedding

I am looking for video of Princess Anne's Wedding. I know it might be hard to come by, but I was hoping someone had a VCR back then.

"Monarchy'" by David Starkey: 2007 TV series on British Royal history

For those of you in the US PBS is running a documentary series called
Monarch with David Starkey. It covers European monarchy through the centuries. I caught only the tail end last night (10pm on PBS chanel 13 in NYC) of the episode on King James during the 1600s. His devotion to catholism and the strife it brought to England. It seems pretty extensive (covering some of the castle built by monarchs etc) and I'd like to see other episodes if anyone has it. I checked the PBC station on Youtube this morning but it is not uploaded there as of today.

David Starkey is a British historian who has a hardcover book called Monarchy for sale at Amazon. I wonder if this series only covers British monarchy? The description caption talked about the Dutch monarchy but the show was actually on King James so I cant be certain how encompassing the series will be. I'll
check out the next episode at report here.

I recieved the DVD Monarchy for Chistmas.

The series only covers the British monarchy starting from the fall of the Roman Empire through Queen Victoria.

All in all the program is okay. Essentially, it's basic/standard British royal history. Nothing new or groundbreaking research from Dr. Starkey. However, it is a good program for those who may be unfamiliar with the turbulent history of the British monarchy. The one thing that I bothered me was the cheesy reenactments. I would have liked to have seen more original portraits of the various monarchs than what was shown.

On the plus side, Dr. Starkey does take the viewer to many historical sites that played a critical role in history. Furthermore, he visits various palaces in Britian as well as abroad (such as Het Loo with it's connection to William III.)

A highlight for me was his review of the Hanoverian kings (my favorite period in British history.) Dr. Starkey also goes into detail regarding Sir Robert Walpole (one of my favorite British politicans along side Chruchill, Lord Grenville, and Disraeli) noting his role/relationship with King George I and King George II as well as discussing the South Sea Bubble. Of course, Dr. Starkey discusses William Pitt the Elder (noting that he was essentially Bi-polar) as well.

Monarchy is a good series for those who are beginners when it comes to British royal history. For the rest of us who have studied it in depth for years, the series is a nice "brush up"; not brilliant, but definitely worth watching.

Finally, not all PBS stations will carry the program. For example, if you live in L.A. they might not show it whereas in NYC they will. So check your local listing so you won't get your hopes up.

The series has been brought up to date with coverage of post-Victoria to the present and speculation about the future. It was broadcast in the UK this month. I don't know if this additional information is available on video yet.

More info on the film: The Young Victoria on Squidoo

Gosh, they should just let Beatrice play Victoria. The resemblance is uncanny!!

Sounds interesting. I wish I could see it; perhaps ITV will sell the documentary to PBS or something in the future.

Does anyone know where I can find "The Royal Family" documentary?

I am hoping to find the full version of "The Royal Family"/ "A year with the Queen" documentary, and I was wondering if anyone knew where to find it, or if it is even available to purchase.

Please let me know, I would be most indebted!

There's a thread in the Royal Library discussing this documentary; I've edited one of the posts to add a link to the page at Amazon.ca where you can preorder the DVD since it doesn't seem to be available at Amazon.com.
