The King’s Speech is about Prince Albert who later became George VI – the man who never expected to be King.  After the abdication of his brother, he reluctantly took his place leading England just before World War II.
The King has to overcome various personal issues of self-worth in a brave feat of public speaking and attempting to overcome his stammer while addressing his people.
After the King has seen various speech therapists, and knowing the country needs her husband to be able to communicate effectively, his wife finds a very unconventional speech therapist, Lionel Louge.  An extraordinary friendship develops between the two men, as Logue uses unconventional means to teach the monarch how to speak with confidence.
