Americans will see a new side to Queen Elizabeth as she celebrates 70 years on the throne.

For the Platinum Jubilee weekend, True royal television will premiere the exclusive American documentary “The Queen Unseen”. The film features rare footage and home movies shot by members and friends of the Royal Family.

Unreleased clips of a young Elizabeth will also be featured. The film highlights how a young princess became queen and ultimately loved by the world.

“There’s so much fascination around the Queen and her 70 years on the throne – she’s Britain’s longest-serving monarch ever,” True Royalty TV co-founder Nick Bullen told Fox News Digital.

“We just felt we had to offer something different to our audience. This is just the most wonderful glimpse of the Queen while she’s off duty, so to speak. You can see a side of her that you wouldn’t normally expect to see.”

Bullen is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who has produced programs on the British Royal Family for 20 years and has worked closely with Prince Charles for around a decade. While founding his production company Spun Gold in 2004, Bullen was already producing royal content before that.

He described how audiences will be surprised at how “normalcy has always been at the core of who she is.”

“The truth is, the Queen has always been a country woman who loves her dogs, loves her horses, loves her cattle, loves being surrounded by nature,” Bullen explained. “When you put her in that element, she’s the most relaxed. She can really be herself.

“You know, as a queen, the crown never falls. So she relishes those times when she can really be herself, a family woman in the countryside. She’s head of state, but she’s also a mother. , grandmother and great-grandmother who loves to laugh, have fun and take care of her family and animals.”

Bullen shared that his favorite part of the documentary was watching the 96-year-old on vacation.

“It’s very rare to see her away from the crowd,” he noted. “She really cherishes those private moments when she’s just with her family and enjoying it. So it’s very rare to find that kind of footage. But these home movies take you into her world. And you feel like you’re really part of it. from There’s no iPhone, no paparazzi in the bushes. It’s just her. And that’s what’s really exciting.”

Elizabeth skipped the thanksgiving service on Friday at St Paul’s Cathedral in London due to travel difficulties, which have limited the monarch’s public engagements in recent months.

The service was held on the second of four days of festivities celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. On Thursday, thousands of royal supporters cheered as the Queen joined other senior royals on the balcony of Buckingham Palace to watch 70 British military planes fly by.

The Queen decided not to attend Friday’s church service after feeling “some unease” during Thursday’s events. Instead, she watched the ceremony on television at Windsor Castle.

The St. Paul’s congregation included members of the royal family, high-ranking politicians, diplomats and more than 400 essential workers, charity volunteers and members of the armed forces who were invited in recognition of their service to the community .

Elizabeth, who only recently recovered from COVID-19, uses a cane. She also gave her eldest son Charles an increasingly prominent role as the public face of the monarchy. Earlier this month he stood in for his mother when ‘episodic mobility issues’ prevented her from presiding over the official opening of Parliament.

Yet in the days that followed, she showed up at a horse show, opened a Tube line and toured the Chelsea Flower Show in a chauffeur-driven royal buggy – a sort of luxurious golf cart.
