    PRINCE PHILIP - THE PLOT TO MAKE A KINGbr/This programme tells the fascinating inside story of how Queen Elizabeth met Prince Philip and the fierce br/tensions unleashed when she fell in love with him - tensions that would eventually place huge strains on the royal marriage that would shape the future of Elizabeth's reign. The royal and political elite at the time disliked Philip's German roots - and they also disliked his larger than life, ferociously ambitious uncle Lord Louis Mountbatten. But it was from this difficult backdrop that a solid marriage and a life of devotion would be forged. This film draws on unpublished memoirs. The programme reveals, for the first time, the early complexities and frustrations of the Royal marriage as the Queen struggled to reconcile the love of her husband with the suspicions of her family and her government who seemed opposed. At the heart of this story Philip and Elizabeth formed an incredibly strong marriage that would withstand the many challenges that would test them. On their golden wedding anniversary in 1997, the Queen paid a touching tribute to her husband, saying, "He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years.". This insightful documentary contains rare and personal footage of the royal couple, the royal wedding and many other key events of their SUPREMEbr/Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's lives have been a journey like no other. Throughout Queen Elizabeth's reign, she has been the United Kingdom's symbol of continuity and stability. In testament to them their marriage has remained steadfast and throughout the many challenges the Royal family have had to face Prince Philip has stood firmly by her side. This programme captures many of those key moments that shaped both of their lives. From the early days of their marriage, the sudden death of the Queen's father, the tragic death of Diana and the fire that devastated Windsor castle. Their many visits to the nations around the world have won them the unwavering respect of her subjects and peers. Both Queen Elizabeth and Philip's story is one of devotion and duty. Amongst it all, both remain true to their cause of upholding the British Monarchy in the face of an ever changing world and Prince Philip role has remained an integral part of building that incredible legacy.
