Some of you have mentioned TV series about the royals, and I wondered about your favorite feature films about the British royals though the ages. A few of my favorites are Anne of the Thousand Days, The Lion In Winter, A Man For All Seasons. Bette Davis portrayed Elizabeth I twice - The Virgin Queen and The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex. I like The Queen (Helen Mirren) and have watched it many times. I've also enjoyed books about various royals by Antonia Fraser and Philippa Gregory. I'd love to know about "royal" reads and films that my colleagues here recommend.
