On top of all its Oscar nominations, The King’s Speech now has the Queen’s seal of approval.
Queen Elizabeth II enjoyed a private screening of The King’s Speech and was “moved” by the film, according to its producers, the Weinstein Company.
The film tells the emotional story of Her Majesty’s father, King George VI, as he struggles to overcome his debilitating stutter.
“Thirty years ago, the Queen Mother asked me to wait and not tell this story during her lifetime because the memory of these events was still too painful,” says screenwriter David Seidler in a statement.
