Sir David Attenborough, who at the time was the BBC's director of programmes, thought it was a risky move."You're killing the monarchy, you know, with this film you're making," Peter Conradi quotes him as saying to the documentary's director in his book Great Survivors

"It should also dispel any illusion that the members of the Royal Family are just rather nice people going through the motions ordained for them but out of touch with the ordinary lives of their subjects. They are revealed as very nice people indeed 'living over the shop' as Prince Philip aptly put it, working as a team at a gruelling job, the strain of which has now become generally known," it wrote.

"The television Royal Family documentary makes the mind boggle at such criminal inanities in this enlightened age. There is a stupendous waste of energy and finance on these royal individuals yet this country is always in financial difficulties."

"We had no idea what she would make of it," he said."She was a little critical of the film in the sense she thought it was too long, but Dick Cawston, the director, persuaded her that two hours was not a minute too long."
