History 52' 90'

Queen Elizabeth's Last Battles

Queen Elizabeth II was History in flesh and blood. We are mourning her passing on September 8th 2022, at ninety six. Her reign is officially the longest of British monarchy, but her life has never been a long calm river.

Between the Brexit earthquake, the passing of Prince Philip, Harry and Meghan renouncing the crown, and the sexual accusations against her favorite son, Andrew, she recently faced many painful challenges. But the iconic queen remained steadfast. 

Thanks to archive footage and a few dramatized scenes, together with interviews of those who know the Royal Family best, this history documentary takes a look back at the key milestones of the Queen over the recent years.
