Celebrating 70 years on the throne

Queen Elizabeth II has now been on the throne for 70 years, making her the longest reigning monarch in history! To celebrate, we've picked five films that feature a character based on our Queen for you to watch with your kids. Biopics, animation and drama - there's something for everyone on this royal list.

The Queen’s Corgi

mild innuendo, threat, dangerous behaviour

The Queen’s Corgi is an animated comedy adventure in which the Queen's new puppy becomes her favourite dog, but a jealous rival plots to drive it away.


There is mild comic innuendo as a female dog attempts to flirt with a male dog, making comments such as 'Take me, stud muffin', 'Want to play rough?' and 'Playing hard to get?'.

Threat and horror

There is mild threat when a dog is pushed into a river and struggles to come to the surface, and in another scene a dog is trapped in a chimney as it tries to escape from a burning room. A large dog chases a smaller one which is then cornered near the entrance of a furnace. In all these cases, the danger in which the animal characters find themselves is resolved without harm or injury occurring.

Dangerous behaviour

In a comic scene a dog climbs into a washing machine which it uses as an improvised treadmill for fitness training. In another scene, a dog uses its head to smash a glass pane in order to access fire-fighting equipment.

There is very mild bad language ('fluff me', 'dammit', 'damn'), as well as very mild rude humour with visual and verbal jokes about farting and peeing.

The Queen And I

mild bad language, violence

The Queen And I is a drama in which a new Republican Prime Minister strips the British monarch and her family of their money and assets.


There is mild bad language ('bloody', 'sodding').


There is some mild violence when people exchange blows and when a man is restrained before being tazered by a police officer. It is implied that two children are bullied as they emerge from school with scrapes and grazes on their faces.


The Queen

Contains a single use of strong language

The Queen is a biographical drama in which Queen Elizabeth II struggles to cope after the death of Princess Diana.


There is infrequent use of strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder terms including 'bloody', 'bugger', 'screw' and 'heck'.

There are infrequent mild sex references and a scene in which a headless dead stag is shown hanging upside down.

The King’s Speech

Contains strong language in a speech therapy context

The King’s Speech is a drama in which King George VI employs an Australian speech therapist with unconventional methods to help him overcome a stammer.


There is occasional use of strong language ('f**k'). The uses occur in two isolated outbursts as part of a technique encouraged by a therapist designed to ease the effects of a man's speech impediment.

There are frequent scenes of smoking, partly due to erroneous medical advice relating to the treatment of speech impediments. The smoking is not shown to be glamorous or advisable.

A Royal Night Out

moderate bad language, sex references

A Royal Night Out is a comedy drama about the young Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret venturing out of Buckingham Palace to enjoy the VE day celebrations.


Moderate bad language includes a single use of 'prick'. Mild bad language includes 'tosser', 'bloody', 'bollocks', 'pissed' and 'sodding'.


There are some references to 'knocking shops', 'working girls' and 'tarts' as a character is taken to a brothel. A woman is asked how long she's 'been on the game'. Innocent remarks about joining a conga line and riding a bus are misunderstood by prostitutes who think they refer to sexual acts.

In the brothel, women are seen wearing underwear and robes while they dance with men. One woman wears only pants and nipple covers.

Soldiers are seen kissing and cuddling women on a bed, wearing just their underwear. One man lies between a woman's legs as he kisses her. Later, the soldiers wake up in bed with several women. Nothing sexual takes place on screen.

Other issues include some mild violence with bar room brawls resulting in punches that are not seen to make contact.

There are some drug references as a man buys 'some bennies to make the evening fly' and pills are put into a woman's drink. She is rescued before the drugs have any serious side effects. There is also a verbal reference to 'opium dens' and 'some sort of smoke that everyone was wild for'.

There are some bloody images of animal butchery as the preparation of a horse carcass is briefly seen.
