You Asked About: Stag Symbolism

Sandy asks…

In the movie “The Queen,” what is the symbolism of the stag?

Chas answers:

The stag,a very rare size specimen,could have been the symbol for Diana,that very rare Royal with the ability to connect with the people,and who was ultimately hunted down by the press.

It could also be the symbol for the idealized view of the Royal Family,that idealized view that was shot down while the true unhappy lives of Diana, Sarah, Andrew and Charles, Anne, Mark Phillips and Tim Lawrence were exposed as their marriages fell apart.
The stag ultimately came to symbolize change;changes had to be made to bring the Royals up-to-date with the people.
