Did you know Queen Elizabeth II snuck out of Buckingham Palace to party with the public on the day the Second World War ended?

The future queen and her sister Princess Margaret mingled incognito with jubilant crowds on the streets of London on 15th May 1945. It’s the making of a brilliant story, so we can see why director Julian Jarrold has decided to take it to the big screen to mark the 70th anniversary of VE Day later this year. 

We don’t have it on good authority that the Queen’s night out in London went exactly like it does in this film but we sure hope it did. We like the idea of her paddling in Trafalgar Square, gambling in Soho, falling off double deckers and drinking bubbles on the capital’s packed pavements… 

In fact, we quite like the idea of a world where Rupert Everett and Emily Watson are king and queen… 

Where everyone seems to do things in perfect time… 

Where even princesses get told off by their dads for coming in too late…

And where a royal frown…  

…is turned upside down after rubbing shoulders with some charming Londoners. 

Yeah. I think we’re going to like this film…
