Q1. Why does Bertie want his brother King Edward VIII to be king?

Q2. What do you think the turning point in the movie was?

Q3. Do you think there was really a psychological reason for Bertie’s stutter? If so, what was it?

Q4. Do you believe Logue’s theory that speech impediments come from some deep psychological pain? Why or why not?
