Our heart goes to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the untimely passing of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. We round up some interesting flicks for you to watch to know more about the royal couple, their family, and other significant people that have once been a part of it.
