A selection of review excerpts is below.

The Hollywood News
"Olivia Colman shines as the Queen. Samuel West is also likable and sympathetic as the king..."

Flick Filosopher
"Everything in Hyde Park concerning the royals — portrayed with grace, aplomb, and resolute humanity by the wonderful Samuel West and the goddesslike Olivia Colman — is fantastic."

Film School Rejects
"[the royals are] played quite adorably and with amazing chemistry by Samuel West and Olivia Colman..."
