When politicians and the Monarchy collide! Starring David Walliams and based on the novel by Sue Townsend, The Queen and I is now available to pre-order.
Bestselling author Sue Townsend has been Britain's favourite comic writer for over three decades, with her novel The Queen and I being described as '"the funniest thing in print since Adrian Mole" (Daily Telegraph).
In praising The Queen and I, The Times said that "no other author could imagine this so graphically, demolish the institution so wittily and yet leave the family with its human dignity intact".
The critically acclaimed novel has now been transformed into a film, with David Walliams taking a starring role.
It's a hilarious satire on modern Britain and an exploration of what it really means to be human, by the bestselling author of the Adrian Mole series.
When a Republican party wins the General Election, their first act in power is to strip the royal family of their assets and titles and send them to live on a housing estate in the Midlands. Exchanging Buckingham Palace for a two-bedroomed semi in Hell Close (as the locals dub it), caviar for boiled eggs, servants for a social worker named Trish.
Needless to say, the Queen and her family learn what it means to be poor among the great unwashed. The question is, is their breeding sufficient to allow them to rise above their changed circumstances
Starring alongside David Walliams is Samantha Bond as the Queen, Amanda Abbington and Johnny Vegas.
