The Queen’s Reaction to THE KING’S SPEECH
Apparently, Queen Elizabeth likes the portrayal of her father’s struggle with his stuttering and her mother’s attempts to help. Â She’s seen a special screening of the film.
So what’s The Queen’s Review of ‘The King’s Speech’? Â Two royal thumbs up.
Queen Elizabeth II of England, depicted as the young daughter of King George VI (played by Colin Firth) in the Oscar-nominated film ‘The King’s Speech,’ received a screening about her father’s struggle with public speaking and his eventual triumph in inspiring his nation in the face of a German invasion.
According to producers The Weinsten Company, she was “moved” by the movie.
The film was only made following the death of her mother, The Queen Mum, who is played by Helena Bonham Carter in the film. She asked writer David Seidel to refrain from committing his screenplay to film until her passing, as it was too painful for her to watch.
She also likes the Wii Entertainment System. Â Here’s the report after Christmas. Â Rock on QE II!
According to British paper The People, Queen Elizabeth II is the latest member of the Wii fanclub.
The report says that the system was a Christmas gift from Kate Middleton to her boyfriend Prince William, but after watching her grandson play, the monarch “begged to join in.” Â ”She played a simple ten-pin bowling game and by all accounts was a natural,” the paper states, presumably referring to (pack-in title) Wii Bowling.
