I guess the question might be what hasn't this family been in...
looks like a remake of The Tortoise and the Hare
with Edward and Emilia


I was thinking that this "Royal Family" of British cinema have been in so many things that they're probably related to royalty and there is a connection...
Edward is also the half-brother of Daniel Chatto, the husband of Lady Sarah Armstrong-Jones, the only daughter of Princess Margaret.
