- Like nuns.

- We understood the reference.

Margaret and I deserve the right

to celebrate too, outside.

I agree with her completely.

I'm sure you do.

You know we can't do that.

Besides, what's so special about going out?

I don't know and I never will

unless we go out tonight.


We have invited your closest friends

to be with you tonight,

suitable young people...

My very close,

my extremely suitable friends?

You're always with me

when I give my speeches.

We four. The family should be

together, tonight of all nights.

We would be still, Papa,

in a way,

but with us out there amongst the people.

Hmm. Hardly the same thing.

I could tell you how it was received.

What they really think.

One day, Lillibet,

far off in the future, you shall be Queen.

- I know that, Mummy.

- And your subjects...

My subjects? What do I know about them?

Your subjects need to see you

as incorporating in your person

the very essence of royalty.

One knows about essences and all that,

but one would still like to

have a dance from time to time.

- The Lindy Hop, for example.

- The what-y hop?

Let them go.

We should let them go.

But they might be recognised.

We would be incognito.

Why not?

After all, we had our fun, remember?

It was different for us.

You weren't the heir.

This might be the only chance she gets.

And me.


That's that, then.


Now can we please get on

with my bloody speech?


We're off, Mickey! We're off!

Yes, would you be so kind as to

connect me to the Chelsea Barracks?

The Colonel.

We're going out...


Does the tiara rather

give the game away, ma'am?


Thanks, Mickey.

What a stunner.

Et moi?


I thought.

Trafalgar Square for a

splash in the fountains,

then the Curzon,
