    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.

    :D Carry On Henry

    [​IMG]
    Henry VIII is up in arms about the garlic breath of his wife, Marie de Normandy, but although he finds it a turn-off, his equerry, Sir Roger de Loggerley, is enamoured by it and becomes her lover. The lecherous king, meanwhile, decides it is time for a new wife and plots with Thomas Cromwell and Cardinal Wolsey to get rid of Marie.

    Cute! But they aren’t mouser cats disguised as corgis. I’m sure the Queen wouldn’t allow cats unless they went undercover as corgis. :D:D

    Yes this is Winston. Thank you very much @Keine Engel his name suits him as he is a Persian and spoiled rotten. He is a bit unhappy this week as my Mum is on holiday and I am looking after her adorable Shih Tzu puppy Maxwell. This is the first time he has stayed and Winston doesn’t like sharing my attention. So Winston is getting even more spoiled this week.

    I could loan Winston to Her Majesty for a while I’m sure he would fit right in at Buckingham Palace.

    I keep meaning to watch The King’s Speech it is supposed to be a very good film. I have a lot I need to watch in the summer before all my shows start back up in September.

    Winston at Buckingham Palace would be perfect!

    Edit by me: Trying to fix the quotes I somehow included and messed up.

    Greg, you posted on another thread the name of Winston’s Instagram account. If you’re willing to do that here, I’m sure he’d have lots of fans! :rolleyes::) Does Maxwell have an IG account too?

    Ah, yes, The King's Speech. Madness of King George is a good film, too. Lion In Winter is among my 5 favorite movies.
