A ROYAL NIGHT OUT is a comedy drama about the young Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret venturing out of Buckingham Palace to enjoy the VE day celebrations.

Language

Moderate bad language includes a single use of 'prick'. Mild bad language includes 'tosser', 'bloody', 'bollocks', 'pissed' and 'sodding'.

Sex

There are some references to 'knocking shops', 'working girls' and 'tarts' as a character is taken to a brothel. A woman is asked how long she's 'been on the game'. Innocent remarks about joining a conga line and riding a bus are misunderstood by prostitutes who think they refer to sexual acts.

In the brothel, women are seen wearing underwear and robes while they dance with men. One woman wears only pants and nipple covers.

Soldiers are seen kissing and cuddling women on a bed, wearing just their underwear. One man lies between a woman's legs as he kisses her. Later, the soldiers wake up in bed with several women. Nothing sexual takes place on screen.

Other issues include some mild violence with bar room brawls resulting in punches that are not seen to make contact.

There are some drug references as a man buys 'some bennies to make the evening fly' and pills are put into a woman's drink. She is rescued before the drugs have any serious side effects. There is also a verbal reference to 'opium dens' and 'some sort of smoke that everyone was wild for'.

There are some bloody images of animal butchery as the preparation of a horse carcass is briefly seen.
