A bold move, even for her!!
Madonna is directing her second film, W.E. - which involves the 1936 scandal involving Edward VIII and the twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson - and has written to the Queen of England for permission to shoot on location on Royal grounds!
One of Madge's associates says in a statement:
"Madonna is keen to make the film as authentic as possible and would be very grateful if we are allowed to film at certain locations. She loves the UK and holds your Queen in the highest regard."
Girlfriend probably shouldn't hold her breath, though.
A royal courtier says:
"I can't imagine that Her Majesty would make an exception, particularly for a film about Wallis Simpson."
Eh. Worth a shot, right??
Best of luck, Madge!!
