LONDON - “The King’s Speech” screenwriter David Seidler says he felt humbled after learning that the queen liked his film.
Seidler says it’s “wonderfully gratifying” to hear the British monarch enjoyed his work.
“To learn Her Majesty has seen the film and was moved, in turn moves and humbles me greatly, contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.
“When, 30 years ago, the Queen Mother asked me to wait and not tell this story during her lifetime, because the memory of these events was still too painful, I realised the depths of the emotions involved.
“Now this story has been written and filmed with a great deal of love, admiration, and respect for Her Majesty’s father. That Her Majesty has responded favourably to this is wonderfully gratifying,” he added.
