New Documentary ‘Being The Queen’ Will Look At How Queen Elizabeth Dealt With Princess Diana’s Death

On the 23rd anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales, a new documentary is being released that looks at the public’s reaction to how Queen Elizabeth dealt with the tragedy.

“Being The Queen” examines how, while the Queen mourned in private and supported her grandsons Prince William and Prince Harry, the public wanted her to mourn with them. As mourners flocked to publicly grieve, the Royal Family stayed at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
