New on Prime Video UK in June 2022: The best movies and TV shows arriving next month
The Platinum Jubilee leads to a royal focus on Prime Video UK this month, with feature documentary Elizabeth: A Portrait in Parts telling the story of the Queen's lengthy reign while Starzplay drama Becoming Elizabeth goes back in time several hundred years to depict the previous monarch to use the name Elizabeth.
However, the streamer's main event in June is undoubtedly the return of the violent, anarchic superhero show The Boys for its third season. Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr and Erin Moriarty are back, along with the rest of the ensemble cast.
It's worth noting too that James Bond fans will want to act fast, as most of the recently-added back catalogue of 007 films will be leaving the service on 14 June. No Time To Die will remain available to stream.

Sprouse's character, though, isn't so keen to ditch "Cristiano", who has managed to gain more than a million followers despite being entirely fictional.
