I don't know about you but I want to know everything about these two royals since seeing The King's Speech. I loved this article and slideshow in Vanity Fair From Sketch to Still, A Visual History of The King’s Speech Sets and Costumes. It's a very good pre-Oscar read. Enjoy.

This is great. I agree, I love anything and everything I can find about the Royal's of that time. I enjoyed listening to the interview you posted with Colin Firth.
Thank you,

For Christmas I was given a 900 pg bio of Elizabeth, the Queen Mum. Asbsolutely fascinating, educating and an asset to my great enjoyment of The King's Speech. It gets my vote for Oscar wins tonight, of course it's the only contender I've seen in the theater so I may not be the best judge.
