At the turn of the millennium, the Queen was battling negative public opinion. The break-up of her children's marriages and the death of Princess Diana had affected the monarchy's popularity. The millennium was an appropriate opportunity to move on from the negative 1990s. She was guest of honour at the Millennium Dome New Year's Eve Celebrations. As midnight struck, everyone broke into Auld Lang Syne, but the Queen looked ill at ease joining in as she shook Tony Blair's hand.
