A Royal Romance explores our unique relationship to Queen Elizabeth via interviews with three former Australian prime ministers; ordinary Australians who cheered her on the streets of their cities and towns; and those close to the Queen in her royal household. There are some exceptional Australian icons; Germaine Greer shows how well she can curtsy, Rolf Harris plays 'Waltzing Matilda' as he did on the streets of London during Elizabeth's coronation, and a republican former prime minister Paul Keating reveals his fond admiration for a monarch he wanted to sack.
