The Queen’s Worst Year: Friday 13 May
1992 was the Queen’s ‘annus horribilis’ - a year of scandal, tragedy and turmoil for the royal family that stretched the monarchy’s credibility to near breaking point. Terrible thing after terrible thing happened in just twelve short months, from Fergie’s topless scandal to Charles and Di’s separation to the Great Fire at Windsor - to the point where no one could quite believe the Queen’s bad luck. This film argues that the impact of the events of 1992 threw the monarchy into a profound identity crisis. It had long since lost its religious mandate, but in 1992 it lost something almost as profound - its ‘fairytale’ reputation, its glitz, glamour and romance, its image as the perfect model family. But what would it become instead and how did the Queen weather the storm of 1992 to become more popular than ever in 2016?
