The Queen herself is a fan of The King’s Speech

"She found it moving and enjoyable"

the king's speech

The King’s Speech is a seriously hot contender at the Oscars this year, with a massive 12 nominations in the annual competition.

Clearly it has a lot of fans out there – including, apparently, Queen Elizabeth II herself (who is played in the film by young Freya Wilson).

An insider at the monarch’s household has revealed that the Queen received two copies of the film just before Christmas and watched it at Sandringham House.

“The Queen loves a good film,” the insider tells The Sun. “The King's Speech is close to the bone as it is a portrayal of her family in the 1930s, but she found it moving and enjoyable.

“She was clearly amused by some of the lighter moments.”

Nice to know who HRH will be backing when the Oscar winners are announced during the ceremony on 27 February.

Biased opinion? Or genuine fan? Think The Queen only likes it because it's a Hollywood version of her life? Speak up below...

      I am always leery of a review or written article when there is a basic error in the content. In this case writer Josh Winning shows his obvious ignorance of the British Royal family by styling the Queen (HRH) The style used by the Queen of England is HM (Her Majesty). HM Queen Elizabeth II hasn't used the style HRH (Her Royal Highness) since early 1952 prior to the death of her father HM King George VI.

      I think she genuinely likes this movie- who wouldn't it's a great film! She could nitpick if she really wanted to

      Errm, why'd she get two copies. Is she prone to losing stuff?
