The story of King George VI of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, his impromptu ascension to the throne and the speech therapist who helped the unsure monarch become worthy of it.
1925 / King George V reigns over a quarter of the world's people. He asks his second son, the Duke of York, to give the closing speech at the Empire Exhibition in Wembley, London.
In a brief scene at the end of the film, a group of soldiers listens to the speech as broadcast. They're wearing the cap badge of The Queen's Regiment, but the badge is the pre-1922 pattern, a paschal lamb with "The Queen's" scrolled beneath. That changed in 1922, to a larger paschal lamb with no scroll.
In the end credit roll, Philip Clements is listed twice as Assistant Sound Editor.
