* IKissYourHand: Blair does it for the Queen after she asks him to form a government. This is a faux pas, since the custom is supposed to be done symbolically, even though it's called "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kissing_hands kissing hands]]"

* UsefulNotes/TheMenOfDowningStreet: The film's subplot of how a Prime Minister interacts with the Queen - namely, how a "modern" Minister like UsefulNotes/TonyBlair is going to work with a woman who's so experienced she can name-drop UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill on you and get away with it.

The same production/writing/director team having made a previous film about Blair starring Sheen, 2003's ''Film/TheDeal'', ''The Queen'' is now [[strike: retconned]] viewed as the second installment in the "Blair Trilogy", which was concluded by ''The Special Relationship'' (about Blair and UsefulNotes/BillClinton, with some Blair/Bush towards the end) in 2010.

Added DiffLines:

* BigRedButton: Invoked and hinted at during the first meeting between Blair and the Queen. The first question she asks him during their first meeting is whether he's been shown [[NuclearOption how to start a nuclear war]], and when he answers that he hasn't, goes on to claim that its always the first thing that new Prime Ministers are taught how to do.

* RoyallyScrewedUp: TheHouseOfWindsor, unsurprisingly. But it's mostly presented as them simply being very out of touch with their modern subjects.
