Queen Elizabeth II has ruled England for decades with strength and dignity, but she finds herself at a loss as to how to respond when the nation is torn apart by the death of her former daughter-in-law, colloquially known as Princess Diana. With the help of the new prime minister, she must learn to navigate a world that has changed drastically without her realizing it. The queen is forced to revisit her own difficult relationship with Diana and help her grieving son and grandsons deal with their loss, but most of all, she must find a way to console a country in mourning. No longer can she be a distant figure in an ivory tower; the English people demand an accessible monarch as they grieve.
