West Wycombe Park will feature in Madonna’s new film
Madonna was directing scenes in West Wycombe for her new film which looks at the story of Kind Edward VIII and his love for Wallis Simpson.
The singer is making her debut as a director of W.E, which was written by the 52-year-old and Alek Keshishian.
She was at West Wycombe estate shooting scenes for the film last week which tells two parallel love stories of a woman from 1998 with a complicated love life and the story of King Edward VIII’s 1936 abdication.
James Fox and Laurence Fox will play King George V and his son, Bertie.
The film has been shot in locations in London, the Home Counties, New York and France.
The estate has been used as a location for many films, including The Importance of Being Ernest and Bridget Jones’ Diary.
West Wycombe Park was gifted to the National Trust in 1943 by Sir John Dashwood. The Palladian Villa is still the Dashwood family home.
The house and grounds are open in June, July and August and there are guided tours of the house from Monday to Thursday and on Sunday visitors can look around in their own time.
