VE Day, 1945. Across the world, people are celebrating the end of the war. London overflows with celebration and excess. Two teenage sisters are allowed out at night for the first time to join the party. They have an amazing adventure; it's like a first date. And they get back home far too late.

Home is Buckingham Palace. Our two teenagers are Princess Margaret and the future queen of England, Elizabeth II.

Based on untold true events, A Royal Night Out is the heart warming and charming tale of the Queen as you've never seen her before.

This film was not originally promoted as a comedy, but has been labelled as one by many parties since its original release so is included on British Comedy Guide for completeness and to avoid confusion.
