SYNOPSIS/PLOT A young street urchin (Andrew Ray), half-starved and homeless, finds a locket containing the likeness of Queen Victoria (Irene Dunne). Not recognizing her, he is told that she is the "mother of all England." Taking the remark literally, he journeys to Windsor Castle to see her.
When he is caught by the palace guards, the boy is mistakenly thought to be part of an assassination plot against the Queen. Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli (Alec Guinness) realizes that the boy is innocent and pleads for him in Parliament, delivering a speech that indirectly criticizes the Queen for withdrawing from public life. The Queen is infuriated by the speech, but she is genuinely moved upon meeting the boy for the first time, and once again enters public life.
