Madonna Veut l'Aide de la Reine pour le Film Royal.

Madonna is hoping to receive noble help on her upcoming movie about late British royal KING EDWARD VIII - the Queen of Pop is planning to write to British monarch ELIZABETH II to ask for her assistance.
The Material Girl is stepping behind the camera for a second time to direct a historical drama based on the British Queen's uncle, who abdicated in 1936 so he could marry twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson.
After Edward stepped down from his duties as King, the crown was passed to his brother George VI - Elizabeth II's father - who was succeeded by his daughter upon his death in 1952.
Madonna is desperate to get the monarch's seal of approval for the project, and is reportedly penning a letter to the Queen to ask for rights to film in certain royal residences, according to Britain's Daily Telegraph.
A source tells the newspaper, "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 U.K. and holds your Queen in the highest regard."
The pop superstar has already signed up Oscar-nominated actress Vera Farmiga to play Simpson in the film, after wooing her with an intimate chat over a "cup of tea."
