The King and I: Charming pictures emerge of three-year-old Elizabeth cuddling up to her stuttering father George VIBy Daily Mail Reporter
The child Queen cuddles her father King George VI - the ruler who famously fixed his stutter to deliver public addresses.
Elizabeth, now 84, is just three years old in the charming family portrait taken in 1929.
Her father Albert, 33 at the time, struggled to speak to large audiences and turned to a speech therapist regarded as a 'quack' to cure his problem in a story told in the King's Speech starring Colin Firth.
