Surely the plot would be Queen Liza Doolittle working on developing a de-poshed acccent to give the firm more street cred.

The idea being she's got to able to do the Christmas Message, or the Queens Speech at the opening of parliament in fluent Cockney or Estuary.

I'd have Ken Livingstone as the Higgins figure, with John Prescott as the Colonel Pickering character. And they'd sneak her into the cast of EastEnders to test her out, where she'd keep on accidentally talking posh.
