Real life basis for movie "Her Majesty"?

I just saw this film, which centers on a girl’s reaction to the Queen’s 1953-54 visit to New Zealand and her relationship with a Maori woman. The package said “inspired by a true story.” Anyone know what that story is?

Well, there really is a New Zealand, Maoris live there, and the queen visited. Not sure there’s much to it beyond that.

Thanks for finding that. In retrospect, it appears that my Googling was hampered by my assumption that more of the story was factual than the state visit and the existence of Maoris. More “inspiration” and less “true story” than I was thinking of.
