The longest reign of any sovereign in British history came to a conclusion on Thursday with the death of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen was a pillar of mainstream culture throughout the last 70 years of her tenure, featuring in generations of television series as well as motion pictures. Her widespread popularity led to depictions not solely by Oscar-winning performers, as well as by Saturday Night Live cast members, and she appeared in animated movies. These actors have portrayed Queen Elizabeth II on television and in movies, including The Crown and Minions.

Here are seven well-known cinematic representations of the late Queen:

The Crown
The Crown is a Netflix-exclusive historical drama television series about Queen Elizabeth II. Elizabeth II was portrayed by Claire Foy in seasons 1-2 and Olivia Colman in seasons 3-4. In the series, Claire played a character that became well-known, and for that performance, she was recognised with several honours, including the Golden Globe, the Emmy, and the SAG. As Queen Elizabeth neared her middle age, Olivia Colman, who succeeded Claire in the role, earned a lot of positive feedback for the part. Imelda Staunton will be playing the older part of Queen Elizabeth II in the upcoming season of The Crown.
A 2021 movie called Spencer is centred on the Christmas of 1991, when Princess Diana was having a problem and contemplated divorcing Prince Charles. Princess Diana was portrayed by Kirsten Stewart in the movie. Stella Gonet played Queen Elizabeth II.

In the 1988 popular comedy, Leslie Nielsen is entrusted with guarding Queen Elizabeth II when she is visiting Los Angeles.
The Queen made one of her final cinematic appearances in a short film starring Paddington Bear to commemorate her platinum jubilee. In the 2:28 minute clip, they can be heard chatting and drinking tea together.
The King's Speech
In the movie, Helena Bonham Carter portrays a young Queen Elizabeth II. In order to overcome his stutter and prove himself capable of leading his country through World War II, King George VI (Queen Elizabeth's father) deals with his stammer with the aid of a speech therapist. Numerous accolades were given to the movie, including the best picture Oscar.
The Queen was a character voiced by Jennifer Saunders in the 2016 animated film Minions. The mission of capturing Her Majesty in order to take her crown was handed to the Minions, Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, in the movie, and thus gave the queen an important role.

The Queen, a Stephen Frears-directed movie from 2006, starred Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II. The events that occurred after Diana, Princess of Wales, passed away in 1997 are the focus of the movie. Helen's performance forewarned her and earned her an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and even the Queen herself complimented her.
