There’s been much discussion about the symbolism behind the stag. Early in the film when the royal family is watching TV, Prince Philip notes that the stag he saw that day had 14 points, and the Queen Mother is pleasantly surprised, noting it had been years since the estate had seen a stag that big. Later, when the stag is killed, the Queen expresses concern that it “didn’t suffer too much.” Many viewers feel that the stag represents Princess Diana or, at least, the Queen’s hidden emotions regarding Diana’s death. Some see the stag as representing the demise of old English values and traditions in the face of Tony Blair’s “modern” goals and ideals. Another interpretation is that the stag represents the Queen herself – proud and vulnerable. In the DVD audio commentary with Peter Morgan and Stephen Frears, Morgan says that the stag was meant to represent something that had survived, that had lived beyond its expected lifetime (x)
