On May 8th, 1945, the end of the war has been celebrated across the world with people coming out on the streets and thence at Buckingham Palace, the two teenage princesses were too excited to be a part of the celebrations. Princess Margaret and the future queen of England, Elizabeth II ask their parents, King George and Queen Elizabeth, to go out. They were given permission only to go out on London streets but in disguise.
The premise of A Royal Night Out sounds interesting and the film is set for its release in the UK on May 15th but no details have so far come out for its international release. It stars Sarah Gadon, Emily Watson, Bel Powley, Rupert Everett, and Jack Reynor among others.
‘A Royal Night Out’ is a film about one perfect, glorious evening in the lives of two real-life princesses. They are Elizabeth and Margaret Windsor and the night is 8 May 1945, V-E Night. The whole of London is on the streets to celebrate the official end of World War II in Europe. It is known the young princesses, aged 19 and 14, slipped out of the palace to join the communal euphoria and went dancing at the Ritz. They apparently returned to Buckingham Palace just after midnight. Directed by acclaimed UK director Julian Jarrold (Becoming Jane, Brideshead Revisited), ‘A Royal Night Out’ is an affectionate ‘what-if’ story about the adventures Elizabeth and Margaret might have had on the joyous night that brought the whole of London together.
