    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Queen Elizabeth goes through to the privy room after receiving the French ambassador, watch out for the actor who plays the artist hanging around on set and being taken by surprise when he is suddenly in shot.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Elizabeth: No-one needs to teach me that marriage is a civil contract as well as one before God, and between two hearts. But you will allow, I think, that it is happier if the hearts speak before the priest and the lawyers?

      • Lady Cobham: He's so impetuous. He just pulls on his hat and takes the first boat to come and see you. I wish my husband had wooed me like that.
        Elizabeth: A man who pulls on his hat on a impulse may pull it off again on a whim.

      • Leicester: We're talking about marriage, not war.
        Elizabeth: They're one and the same thing, but we're not irrevocably committed to either, are we, Burghley?
        Burghley: Well, Ma'am, we're getting precariously close to one or the other.
