Peter Morgan's uncompromising screenplay hypothesizes much of the Queen's thoughts and emotions during this difficult period as this story takes us into extremely private moments with the conflicted monarch of which no one could be privy, but basically, this story portrays the Queen as an icy and cold-hearted harridan who is curiously unmoved by Diana's death and does nothing to publicly grieve or acknowledge the Princess, who by this time, was already divorced from Prince Charles and had basically turned her back on the Royal family.
The Queen tells this story that I know while filling in the behind the scenes reasons why the Queen took the actions that she did.
A docudrama cheifly recounting the week after Diana's death and how both the Royal Family and the Prime Minister handled the news, it's given weight and interest by Helen Mirren's excellent central performance.
