According to the postage date of one of the letters Sophie puts on the desktop, the events take place in September 1983. But when the Queen phones foreign presidents (suggested by the fact she tells to Nancy (Nancy Reagan) that she want to talk to Ronnie (Ronald Reagan)), she talks before with Boris. Assuming this refers to the Russian/Soviet leader, Boris Yeltsin was elected in 1991. Yuri Andropov headed the USSR at this time.
