The movie sees the British actor transform into a hard-partying version of five-time Grammy winner ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic, a singer and accordion player who made a career crafting parodies of hit songs.

The official synopsis reads:  ‘Weird tells the “true” story of Alfred Matthew Yankovic, better known as “Weird Al” Yankovic, his beginning interest in the accordion, his discovery by Dr. Demento, his support from Madonna, and his overall claim to fame’.

Only her eldest children, Prince Charles and Princess Anne, who were already in Scotland at the time of the Monarch’s sudden turn for the worse, were able to make it to the royal estate before her death, sources said.

Prince Andrew, Prince Edward, his wife Sophie, and Prince William all flew in from Berkshire via private jet to Aberdeen on Thursday as they dashed to Balmoral to see her. But it is understood that they did not reach the estate before she passed.

Prince Harry, who was due to attend a charity event with wife Meghan in London on Thursday, also attempted to reach Balmoral in time. But he arrived at 8pm, nearly an hour-and-a-half after the public were informed of the Queen’s death.

The Queen’s son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, is now King Charles III, while Prince William has inherited his father’s title and is now, along with his wife, styled The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge. William is also now the ‘heir apparent’ to the British throne.
