More King George III

On that same note about King George III, we had another recent occurrence. that gave the APF and porphyria more publicity. Recently, the movie, The King's Speech, was the story of one of the heirs of King George who became King after his brother abdicated, "for the woman he loved." He was the grandfather of the present Queen Elizabeth. Remember that story!!!

Several years ago , producers of the movie called us regarding the porphyria connection to the royal family. The King has a stammer, so they wanted to know if pophyria was a cause. I told them this was another family issue.

Regardless, they gave the APF credit in the movie credits. Which reminds me, we have had more television exposure than any other rare disease. If you watch HOUSE, you will have seen porphyria featured many times. To illustrate , here is a list of shows below, as well as two movies:
