The Queen and her Prime Ministers
Governments come and go, the queen stays. Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II will celebrate her 70th anniversary on the throne in June 2022. She has witnessed 14 prime ministers and received them for more than 3,500 weekly private audiences: from the probably most important British statesman Winston Churchill, who was enthusiastic about his young queen, to the difficult relationship with the Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher, to the Brexiteer Boris Johnson.
The WELTjournal examines the relationship between the Queen and the British heads of government. At the same time, the film looks back on the 70 years of her reign, with the happy and tragic events in the royal family as well as the social and political developments that have shaped Great Britain in recent decades.
