Hyde Park Corner
Notes About the Violence
This show is very similar to Downton Abbey, for the most part, because it is a drama, there is not a lot of violence. But in the first season, at least, there are medical scenes that are rough.
King George is on a shoot..
"Even when it's in the national interest, sir?" - Anthony Eden
"The national interests? Or Anthony Eden's interest?"
The king shoots...
Ducks that were killed are shown lying and hanging in a cart
"Foreign Secretary" - King
"Your majesty. Sir." Anthony Eden
Hear a car start up
"Shall we begin to walk back, sir?"
The King is singing with Princess Margaret, to a grand applause and he goes to bed and watches TV...then a solitary bag piper.
The King is found to have passed away over night. Not graphic.
Hear footsteps...then whispering, then a gasp, the queen is yelling...OK to look
Princess Elizabeth just got the news that her father has passed away from the Duke and they are standing out on the lawn, people start to gather to see her...the scene switches to a silhouette of Princess Margaret, time to look away
The King is being embalmed.
Margaret is riding a horse, hear a truck, OK to look
"They're going to send you away, but I won't let them. I'm going to tell my mother not to send you. I won't..." - Princess Margaret.
Churchill is doing a radio address, as the new Queen arrives...
"The late King, who assumed the heavy burden of the Crown, when he succeeded his brother, lived through every minute of this struggle, with a heart that never quavered and a spirit undaunted..."
The queen walks into his room
See the king laying in uniform, but nothing graphic
She walks out as Churchill's speech continues
"Famous have been the reigns of our queens. Some of the greatest periods in our history have unfolded under their scepters.
