On the night their father is set to deliver his historic post-war speech, Elizabeth II and her unruly sister Margaret get a rare pass to be out celebrating with the people. Worlds collide, hilarity ensues, romance buds. Predictable but nonetheless appealing with a winning self-awareness and bubbly good cheer, the royal comedy smartly capitalises on the juicy premise of a teenage, party-ready Queen and proves more enjoyable than it has any reason to be.
