Why is The Queen rated PG-13? The Queen is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for brief strong language.

One quick and somewhat difficult to understand use of a sexual expletive is the greatest content concern in this film. A few other mild expletives and one use of a scatological term are heard. Sexual impropriety is vaguely discussed. Violence is limited to a scene depicting a dead deer with its head removed. One person is shown with what appears to be an alcoholic drink.

Many fictitious stories have been created from the idea of living in the public spotlight. In The Princes Diaries, an average American teenager discovers she descends from royalty and is asked to decide if she is willing to wear the crown. In the sequel, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, the young princess must endure a very public courtship in order to fulfill the obligation of finding a new crowned prince. Tired of being in the royal fishbowl, a young princess (played by Audrey Hepburn) swims free of her publicity managers and takes a Roman Holiday. The film Paparazzi takes a look at the darker side of being hunted by celebrity hounds.
