The crew and members of the cast of critically acclaimed movie The Queen have been given the royal seal of approval from Queen Elizabeth II and have been invited to lunch at Buckingham Palace.
Director Stephen Frears has been asked to set aside a date for lunch by the Queen’s private secretary, Robin Janvrin.
Frears made a name for himself in the 1980s directing a number of cult indie hits including My Beautiful Laundrette, Sammy and Rosie Get Laid and Prick Up Your Ears.
In 2001, he made Liam, a film dealing with anti-Semitism in Liverpool. At the time he said: “It’s the first time I’ve made a film that deals with Jewish matters, which mattered to me. Also the account of the rise of fascism. I thought it was very important.”
At this time, it’s not clear whether Queen Elizabeth will be present to meet the makers of the film.
Sources close to the monarch say she has seen the film and that she was “amused”.
