The King’s Speech….is of course the movie that’s been on everyone’s lips, especially after it scooped up four Oscars including “the big one” for Best Picture.

The movie faced a real challenge – it wanted to be historically accurate but wasn’t allowed to film in any of the royal palaces (there’s a longstanding rule against drama productions using the palaces). So Buckingham Palace was recreated by using a number of locations, the main one being Lancaster House (just off the Mall) – owned by the Foreign Office – where all the scenes of the State rooms were filmed.
