A thoughtful and imaginative exploration of what could have happened during the Queen’s private meetings with British Prime Ministers through the decades.
For the past sixty years Elizabeth the second has met the Prime Minister every week, for an audience at Buckingham Palace. Her reign spans twelve Prime Ministers, each very different and each with their own set of unique challenges. The private audiences also chart the Queen’s remarkable life, from the post -war years when she was young mother to the later years of the second Elizabethan Age. Politicians come and go, but HRH remains constant, waiting to welcome her next Prime Minister.
The show is opened for a limited season until 15 June 2013.
