The Real King's Speech

Synopsis: The story of King George VI of Britain and his struggles with his speech impediment and the unexpected responsibilities of the throne.
60 min

with his elder brother.

Now, that was very awkward.

And people used to say things like,

"Oh, it's like an ugly duckling

and a cock pheasant."

(NEWSREEL) His walk,

his manner were copied.

The Prince of Wales' drape was

the epitome in men's suit design.

Even use of a cigarette holder

became the mode as a result

of his visit.

To the Prince of Wales,

everything came very easily.

He had but to sort of flash

that grin and that boyish look

and people sort of melted

before him.

George V had six children.

Bertie was the second son.

All had a strict upbringing.

Bertie started to stammer

at the age of seven.

The father probably induced it

as much as anybody else

by his treatment of Bertie,

and know, "Get it

out! Get it out!" when he stammered.

He had also the braces put on his

legs to stop him being knock-kneed,

and being forced to write with his

right hand when he was left-handed,

and that combination is probably

enough to give anyone a stammer.

It adds up to a pretty grim picture

for poor Bertie, doesn't it?

I think that everything

improved for him

because he married

the perfect woman.

He had married Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon,

who later became the Queen Mother.

She was supportive of Bertie

all his life.

Away from public duty, they enjoyed

the privileges of royalty.

(NEWSREEL) These were the early,

happy years.

He chose the joys of the countryside

whenever his heavy duties

would permit.

But in 1926, their lives

were interrupted.


His father thought it was time for

Bertie to go out into the Empire

on a six-month tour.

And Bertie would be making dozens of

speeches to thousands of strangers.

If he didn't want to

let his father down,

he had to deal with his stammer.

On 19th October 1926,

the Duke and Duchess of York arrived
