Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie probably won't show up on kids' radar. It's really for the adult royal watcher. But if you decide to watch with your kids, know that the movie includes brief allusions to Princess Diana's car crash, preceded by the assembled press throng. There's a lot of discussion of the funeral, as well as archival TV imagery of the public mourning sites (flowers and artifacts left at estate and palace gates). Diana's sons and some on-the-street interviewees appear in tears. The movie features hunting scenes in which the royals "stalk" stags and shoot at them; one dead stag (killed off screen) appears hanging headless and draining blood, with its severed head on a table waiting for treatment. One use of "f--k" near beginning of film.

Sexual Content

Tabloid shots of Diana with her fiancé (illustrating photographers' intrusiveness); Diana appears in an archival TV interview complaining that there were "three people" in her marriage to Charles.

Violence

Allusions to Diana's fatal Paris car crash (archival shots of the tangled-up car, with police inspecting the scene); Diana's young sons and Charles cry at news of her death; the royals hunt stags (using guns); a dead stag (killed off screen) appears bloody and decaptitated.

Language

Brief profanity: one "f--k," plus one each of "bugger," "hell," and "Oh, Christ."

Social Behavior

The royal family's resentment and dislike of Diana appears here to be unreasonable; Tony Blair and Queen Elizabeth have a tense relationship, competing for "public" support.

Consumerism

British tabloids on frequent display.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Minor drinking (wine with meals).
