The role of monarch is one that comes with many challenges - it's a life in the spotlight, every word has weight, and the rest of the Royal family can sometimes create conflicts of interest. This documentary charts the moments in the Queen's life when her duty as the sovereign has outweighed her duty to her family.
Our Queen has faced difficult choices in her near-70-year reign, from denying her sister, Margaret, permission to marry the man she loved, Captain Peter Townsend; to issues over Brexit, the death of Diana and dealing with the fallout of Prince Andrew's friendship with Jeffrey Epstein. A host of Royal commentators and insiders will tell us how she has faced those difficult decisions and how there can only ever one winner when it comes to duty and family.
