The VE Day celebrations may have taken place over the weekend, but they start all over again on Friday – on the big screen this time – with the release of A Royal Night Out, certificate 12A.
There’s plenty of archive material of the celebrations on 8 May 1945, one of the most famous being the photograph of the Royal Family on the Buckingham Palace balcony: King George VI, Queen Elizabeth, the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret and guest of honour, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, all waving to the enthusiastic crowds down below.
