When the Queen is in residence, the Royal Standard is the flag that should be flying above Buckingham Palace. In this film, it is the Union Flag. This should only fly when the Queen isn't at home. It used to be the case that the Royal Standard should be the only flag above the palace and when the Queen was away, there would be nothing. However, there was an uproar following the death of Princess Diana as Queen Elizabeth II wasn't home so there was no flag to put at half mast. Since then, it's the Royal Standard when she's in, and the Union Flag when she's away.
