Americans will see a new side of Queen Elizabeth as she celebrates 70 years on the throne.
For the Platinum Jubilee weekend, real real tv will exclusively premiere the American documentary “The Queen Unseen”. The film features rare footage and home movies shot by members and friends of the royal family.
Unreleased clips of a young Elizabeth will also be featured. The film highlights how a young princess became a queen and was eventually loved by the world.
“There is so much fascination around the Queen and her 70 years on the throne – she is the longest-serving British monarch,” True Royalty TV co-founder Nick Bullen told Fox News Digital.
QUEEN ELIZABETH THROUGH THE YEARS
“We felt we had to offer something different to our audience. It’s just the most wonderful glimpse of the Queen while she’s off duty, so to speak. You get to see a side of her that you wouldn’t normally expect to see. »
Bullen is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who has produced programs about the British royal family for 20 years and has worked closely with Prince Charles for nearly a decade. While founding his production company Spun Gold in 2004, Bullen was already producing actual content before then.
She described how audiences will be shocked at how “normalcy has always been at the heart of who she is.”
“The truth is that the Queen has always been a country woman who loves her dogs, loves her horses, loves her cattle, loves being surrounded by nature,” Bullen explained. “When you put her in that element, she is the most relaxed of her. She can really be herself.
“You know, as a queen, the crown never falls. So she savors these moments where she can truly be herself, a family woman in the country. She is head of state, but she is also a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. she that she likes to laugh, have fun and take care of her family and her animals. »
Bullen shared that his favorite part of the documentary was seeing the 96-year-old on vacation.
“It’s very rare to see her away from the crowd,” he said. “She really appreciates those private moments when she’s just with her family and enjoying it. So it’s very rare to find these kinds of sequences. But these home movies take you into her world. And you feel like you’re really a part of There’s No iPhone.” “Not Paparazzi in the Bushes. It’s just her. And that’s what’s really exciting.”

Elizabeth skipped Friday’s service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral in London due to travel difficulties, which have limited the monarch’s public engagements in recent months.
The service was held on the second of four days of festivities celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. On Thursday, thousands of royal supporters cheered as the Queen joined other royals on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch 70 British military aircraft fly by.
The Queen decided not to attend Friday’s church service after feeling “some uneasiness” during Thursday’s events. Instead, she watched the ceremony on television at Windsor Castle.
The St. Paul congregation included members of the royal family, high-ranking politicians, diplomats and more than 400 essential workers, charity volunteers and members of the military who were invited in recognition of their service to the community.
