The Royal Collection Movies Boxed Set
Five Of The Best Royalty Movies Are Included In The Royal Collection
The Royal Collection shown here is a Canadian-released boxed set of royalty-themed movies that I chanced upon recently. It includes five unforgettable movies PLUS a commemorative bookmark and postcard set.
When I first wrote this, The Royal Collection was somewhat hard to obtain but was avaialbe from a few eBay sellers. However, now it is readily available from Amazon and eBay.
This page then is about this box set, which contains five of the best Royalty themed movies. You can create your own set or collection of royal-themed movies by buying these five movies in this attractively boxed set. For those who have moved on to blu-ray, you will be pleased to know that you have the option of buying it in blu-ray or DVD form.
The set or any combination of these movies would be a fantastic gift idea for anyone who loves the royal family and/or period drama films. I think these movies would also make a great Mother's Day gift. On this page, learn what movies are included in this set and a bit more about them.
"Five unforgettable movies, together for the first time."

- The King's Speech (2010) - Starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter. A brilliant movie, The King’s Speech, deals with King George VI’s taking of the throne and how he used speech therapy to prove himself worthy of the role of King of England.
The Queen (2006) - Starring Helen Mirren and Michael Sheen. The premise of this movie is based upon Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and her reaction to events around the life of Princess Diana.
