It’s the Queen’s Birthday long weekend this week in Australia, and we thought we’d celebrate by re-watching some our our favourite royal-themed TV shows and movies!
Why we love it: The drama, the intrigue, the accents….. the historical detailing is phenomenal and the performances are compelling to watch. Also Princess Margaret. WE STAN AN ICON.
Why we love it: Olivia Coleman! Rachel Weisz! Emma Stone! This movie is a tour-de-force for some of the most accomplished and talented actresses in the industry today. Also it’s hilarious.
Why we love it: The fabulous Scottish accents, the Tudor intrigues and the story that shines a light on two women from history trying desperately to wield power in a world dominated by men.
Why we love it: It’s so deliciously and salaciously trashy ; the perfect binge-watch for a chilly Winter’s day.
Why we love it: Cate Blanchett. Nuff said.
Why we love it: The romance between Albert and Victoria is so wonderfully sweet and tender, and the final scenes really tug at the heartstrings.
Why we love it: The gorgeous Victorian dresses. The blossoming romance. The portrayal of a strong empowered heroine. What’s not to love?
Why we love it: The costumes!!!! The sets!!! This show is lush and gorgeous. It also has deeply feminist themes #amazing
Why we love it: It’s sexy…..
Why we love it: Phenomenal women [Jodie Comer, Essie Davis, Michelle Fairley], GORGEOUS Tudor costumes and enough soapy drama to keep you thoroughly entertained on a cold Winter’s night.
