[via press release from HBO]

"QUEEN OF THE WORLD," LANDMARK DOCUMENTARY ON HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II, DEBUTS OCT. 1, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO IN THE U.S.

QUEEN OF THE WORLD, a landmark documentary on Her Majesty The Queen, will debut MONDAY, OCT. 1 (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO, which has U.S. rights to the film.

The film will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners' streaming platforms.

Produced by Oxford Films for the ITV network in the U.K., QUEEN OF THE WORLD will offer unique insights into Her Majesty The Queen's role as a figure on the global stage, and the baton she is passing to the younger members of the Royal Family as they continue to build upon the Commonwealth, an association of free and independent nations, the majority of which were formerly part of the British Empire. Today, there are 2.4 billion Commonwealth citizens, which is almost one-third of the world's population.

Filmed over more than a year with privileged access to The Queen, her family, her staff and her residences, this landmark documentary tells the story of how the Commonwealth has been a central focus and passion throughout Her Majesty's life.

QUEEN OF THE WORLD features behind-the-scenes moments with The Queen and other members of the Royal Family, including Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Princess Anne; Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge; Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex; and the Countess of Wessex.

As the family and world leaders discuss the importance of the Commonwealth to The Queen, the film documents the ways she passes her knowledge and experience to the younger generations.

Drawing on footage from The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh's private film archives and treasures of the Royal Collection, QUEEN OF THE WORLD will offer a unique perspective on The Queen's early years as Head of the Commonwealth, when Her Majesty had the symbols of the then-eight Commonwealth countries embroidered on her Coronation gown. That number had risen to 53 by the time the Duchess of Sussex had flowers of the Commonwealth represented on her wedding veil in 2018.

Oxford Films also produced the documentary "Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy," which debuted on HBO in 2017.

QUEEN OF THE WORLD is directed by Matt Hill; writer/producer, Robert Hardman; producer, Faye Hamilton; executive producer, Nick Kent.
