An Inspiring Royal Tribute

In honor of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, the Stuttering Foundation shared a tribute to the Queen that recognized her kindness and commitment to service, which was instilled in her by her father King George VI. The Stuttering Foundation had recently highlighted the King in the organization's popular stutterers list.

King George VI was also the inspiration for the movie The King's Speech in 2010. The film revolves around George VI's stuttering and his relationship with Lionel Logue, an Australian speech therapist he retained before, during, and after his older brother's 1936 abdication to help him overcome his stuttering. In contrast to numerous other movies where characters stutter, this one focuses on the lead character's stuttering and speech therapy.

Visit the Stuttering Foundation website to discover how the King overcame his stuttering and became an inspiration.
