And Colin Firth won an Oscar for his performance as her father, King George V, in The King’s Speech. The queen and her sister are little girls in this movie.

There are some glimpses of the real-life wedding processional of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in the Fred Astaire musical Royal Wedding. And there’s a very silly scene in The Naked Gun where Leslie Nielsen “protects” the queen.  (Thanks, @carrierickey!)

And for the real thing, there’s The Queen 60 Glorious Years Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Edition and The British Royals Collection / Queen Elizabeth II.
