Due to King George's ongoing ill health, Elizabeth and Philip tour the Commonwealth in his place. While they are in Kenya on safari, George is found dead in his bed to the devastation of his wife Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother (Victoria Hamilton), his mother Queen Mary (Eileen Atkins), and Elizabeth's sister Princess Margaret (Vanessa Kirby). In the African bush, Elizabeth is unreachable and the event is spread via radio to the world before she can be informed. Philip breaks the news to his wife, who then returns to the UK to unite with her family in their grief.
