Run time: 97 mins

It is VE Day and the two young princesses Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon) and Margaret (Bel Powley) are completely ‘cheesed orff’ at being locked away in a ‘ghastly mausoleum’ (that is to say, Buckingham Palace) when the rest of Britain is celebrating.

They somehow persuade Mummy and Daddy (a stuttering Rupert Everett as King George and Emily Watson as Ma’amy) to allow them out to celebrate ‘incognito’ with the rest of the London crowds.

Based partly on anecdote (apparently, the princesses really did join the VE Day celebrations) the film follows Elizabeth and Margaret as they quickly wriggle free from their chaperones and become separated from each other. Their travels take them from nightclubs to knocking shops, from the fountains of Trafalgar Square to Chelsea Barracks and a turbulent night begins to unfold.

“This is a poignant and entertaining affair, with enough of a satirical edge not just to seem like an exercise in cosy British nostalgia.” (Independent)

“The whole thing is as fake and fragile as a cheap commemorative mug, but there’s ripe fun to be had in its tikety-booness.” (Observer) (research Jane Clucas) It is just the ticket. Sold out in June – so don’t miss the royal fun in July.

Our last tribute to the Queen. This little fiction tells the tale of two girls on their first (and last) fun night out.
