Emily Watson who stars in A Royal Night Out awarded OBE
STAR OF A ROYAL NIGHT OUT EMILY WATSON IS AWARDED AN OBE BY HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN FOR SERVICES TO DRAMA
Emily Watson, star of A Royal Night Out, will today visit Buckingham Palace to be awarded on OBE for services to drama. The setting is not unfamiliar to the actress, who plays the late Queen Mother in A Royal Night Out (out in UK cinemas today).
VE Day, 1945. Across Europe, people are celebrating the end of the war. London overflows with celebration and excess. Two teenage princesses are allowed out that night to join the party. For the first time they are able to mingle with the teeming crowds, incognito.
Our two teenagers are Margaret (Bel Powley) and the future Queen of England, Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon). Home is Buckingham Palace.
Inspired by true events, A Royal Night Out is a heart-warming and riotous tale of the Queen witnessing the energy and spirit on this unique night.
A Royal Night Out also stars Rupert Everett as King George, Emily Watson as Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and Jack Reynor as Jack.
With 2015 marking the 70th Anniversary of VE Day, join in the celebrations when A Royal Night Out is released in UK cinemas on May 15th.
Directed by Julian Jarrold from a screenplay by Trevor de Silva and Kevin Hood, A Royal Night Out is produced by Robert Bernstein and Douglas Rae through their company Ecosse Films (Mrs Brown, Nowhere Boy).
Starring BAFTA Award Winner Emily Watson as Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, Golden Globe nominated Rupert Everett as King George, Sarah Gadon as Princess Elizabeth, Bel Powley as Princess Margaret and Jack Reynor as Jack, A ROYAL NIGHT OUT is out now.
