We gave it a B

Here’s a chance for closet Tories to pig out in a two-tape, four-hour orgy with the major Royals (Queen Elizabeth, Philip, Margaret, Charles, Di, Anne). The documentary Royalty: An Uncommon Working Family (filmed for West German television) accompanies the busy Windsors through the year 1985 to show the family earning its keep. See Liz greet diplomats from obscure nations! See Charles recite an original fairy tale! See President Reagan toast Di as ”Princess David”! Quality stuff, but much of it is familiar even to the most casual monarchists. B
