影片对白

Elizabeth: Oh, I do love this time of day. Shall we walk while there's still light? You know the clocks go back next week. It'll be dark before five. I do hope you're a walker.

Tony: I am.

Elizabeth: Good. I always think these meetings have far a greater chance of success if the Prime Minister is a walker. As a matter of fact, it's how I think best, on my feet. I've never been one for sitting around endlessly. A good walk in fresh air sorts everything out. One in four, you said, wanted to get rid of me?

Tony: For about half an hour, but then you came down to London, and all that went away.

Elizabeth: I've never been hated like that before.  

Tony: It must have been difficult.

Elizabeth: Yes. Very. Nowadays, people want glamour and tears, the grand performance. I'm not very good at that. I never have been. I prefer to keep my feelings to myself, and foolishly, I believed that was what people wanted from their Queen - not to make a fuss, nor wear one's heart on one's sleeve. Duty first, self second. That's how I was brought up. That's all I've ever known.

Tony: You were so young when you became Queen.

Elizabeth: Well. Yes. Yes, a girl. But I can see that the world has changed, and one must... modernize?

Tony: Well, perhaps that's where I can help.
