I love movies about British Kings and Queens. It’s logical really – I’m a Brit and I love history – ergo, it’s a no-brainer. Their history also makes for fascinating viewing. With characters from ancient Boudicca (Boadicea), scourge of the Romans, to serial womanizer Henry VII to present Queen Liz II, many stories have been turned into great movies about British Kings and Queens.
1. The King’s Speech (2010)

Currently reigning at the top of the list of movies about British Kings and Queens is the 2010 box office hit The King’s Speech. Starring Colin Firth as George VI, the film tells the story of how the King conquered his stammer and helped lead the nation through World War II. Filled to the brim with stellar acting performances from the likes of Helena Bonham-Carter and Geoffrey Rush, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better movie about a British King.
