It's a compilation of talking heads nattering on about... something, I guess.

Does the documentary have that odd USian commentary like the trailer?

I didn't notice any. The trailer might be for a US audience, as it's branded with US-style TV station call letters.

The graphics department heroically attempted to supply visual interest to this dull-as-dust saga, by incessantly panning a bizarrely photoshopped collage of memorabilia, spliced with footage of well-shod feet traversing vast lawns.

That's how we do our period drama over here.
Surely you're not relying on our personalities to convey any sense of pomp or grandeur?!

I do watch it, if time allows. More from a morbid fascination with how the royals present themselves rather than through any patriotic influences.

I read last week the army has regular drills on mobilizing in the event of the queen's death, which got conflated on twitter to mean she had in fact 'secretly' died.

What are they expecting: rioting? A coup?

It'll be a state holiday (day of national mourning), probably. It's been 60 odd years since the last monarch went to the great banqueting halls in the sky, so there's no real precedent, royal weddings aside. It'll generally be met with most people going to the pub. :|
