The Queen Quotes (2006)
If you imagine I'm going to drop everything and come down to London before I attend to my grandchildren who've just lost their mother, then you're mistaken. I doubt there is anyone who knows the British people more than I do, Mr. Blair, nor who has greater faith in their wisdom and judgement. And it is my belief that they will any moment reject this...this "mood", which is being stirred up by the press, in favor of a period of restrained grief, and sober, private mourning. That's the way we do things in this country...quietly, with dignity. That's what the rest of the world has always admired us for.

HM QUEEN ELIZABETH II

When you no longer understand your people, Mummy, maybe it is time to hand it over to the next generation.

HM QUEEN ELIZABETH II

You must show your strength. Reassert your authority. You sit on the most powerful throne in Europe, head of an unbroken line that goes back more than a thousand years. Do you think any of your predecessors would have dropped everything and gone up to London because a bunch of hysterics carrying candles needed help with their grief? Huh! As for that silly Mr. Blair with his Cheshire Cat grin...

HM THE QUEEN MOTHER

You may not be allowed to vote, Ma'am, but it is your government.

PORTRAIT ARTIST

And remember, it's "Ma'am" as in "ham", not "Ma'am" as in "farm".

EQUERRY

Will someone please save these people from themselves!

TONY BLAIR

Have we shown you how to start a nuclear war yet?...First thing we do, apparently. Then we take away your passport and spend the rest of our time sending you around the world.

HM QUEEN ELIZABETH II

You know, when you get it wrong, you really get it wrong! That woman has given her whole life in service to her people. Fifty years doing a job she never wanted. A job she watched kill her father. She's executed it with honor, dignity, and, as far as I can tell, without a single blemish. And now we're all baying for her blood! All because she's struggling to lead the world in mourning for someone who...who threw everything she offered back in her face. And who, for the last few years, seemed committed 24/7 to destroying everything she holds most dear!
