Prince Phillip - A Plot to Make a King DVD

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play.

Prince Philip: The Plot to Make a King tells the fascinating inside story of the fierce tensions unleashed when the Queen fell in love with Prince Philip. Tensions that would place huge strain on the royal marriage, and would shape the future of Elizabeth's reign. The royal and political elite disliked Philip's German roots and they also disliked his larger than life, ferociously ambitious uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten. This film draws on unpublished memoirs to show how Mountbatten manoeuvred for a royal marriage as early as the winter of 1939-40, when the Queen was just 13. But when Mountbatten was heard to declare, 'The House of Mountbatten now reigns', following the death of King George VI in 1952, the establishment fought back against what they feared was a dynastic coup. Churchill himself was very instrumental in making sure Philip would have no meaningful power and some of the royal family members at the time were also opposed to the prospect of this royal match. The film reveals, for the first time, the complexities and frustrations of the Royal marriage as the Queen struggled to reconcile the love of her husband with the suspicions of her family and her government. Philip's ascension to consort may have been a 'high-stakes dynastic power struggle' orchestrated by his uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten. But to his credit Prince Philip worked relentlessly hard to make the Royal marriage a success and has stood beside Queen Elizabeth as a constant support throughout her long reign. This documentary is also very much a story of how this young royal couple coped against all the odds to make their relationship and the monarchy work. It also gives us an insight into the story of Philip's youth and why Elizabeth would have seen him as the dashing handsome young prince that she fell in love with. On their golden wedding anniversary in 1997, the Queen paid a touching tribute to her husband, saying, 'He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years'. This insightful documentary contains rare and personal footage of the royal couple, the royal wedding and other key events of that time. Narrated by Tamsin Greig.
